    Macia to Villa

    Is anyone actually that fussed about losing him? I don't know if I'm missing something but from what I've saw, he's not exactly a huge loss if he goes.

    Adrien Silva

    Definately not. But it's not his passing that's letting him down. He's just not really excelling at anything. He's not great going forward OR defensively, he's just there.....

    Adrien Silva

    His pass rate last year was 81%. So far this year it's 86%..... Not exactly terrible is it?

    Bournemouth V Leicester - Match Thread

    We're a possession based team that can't pass the ball. We offer very little in the way of creating chances and we are poor at the back. Yes, we've not had a terrible start to the season but it's not told the whole story, we were lucky to beat Southampton, were outplayed against wolves and are being destroyed against Bournmouth. Something needs to change. We can't keep sending out the same players on the same system and expect something different than what we are getting.

    Is Mendy our new Kante?

    Like most on here, I think it's unfair to put that label on him. It's unnecessary pressure. I am chuffed at the start he's made this season, though. I've always liked CDM's so to have two good ones is excellent.
  6. Against the better defences? Not only had Liverpool not conceded before today but not ram had managed more than two shot on goal against them....
  7. Disappointed not to get anything but there was DEFINATELY aspects of that performance that was encouraging. We certainly have no issues winning the ball for one.

    Our start so far?

    When Puel took charge, I asked a Southampton supporting mate what he thought. His exact words were " He'll turn you into a solid mid table team but you won't he good to watch"..... Seems fairly spot on so far although it is very early in the season. Admittedly, I'm a little worried offensively. We are lacking in attacking midfielders (barring Maddisons bright start) and our new style of play looks like it COULD isolate our biggest attacking threat in Vardy. On the other hand, we look like we're going to be a hard team to beat.

    Where we struggle keeping the ball never mind creating chances.

    Wolves H Post Match Thread 2-0

    Wasn't pretty but job done. Ricardo was immense. Chilwell and Mendy for me had a good game. Creativity is an issue for me. Mendy and Ndidi can offer a solid base but if the 4 in front of them don't create it's going to lead to games like today.

    Wolves (H) match thread

    I actually think Mendy has been decent. He's not great on the ball but we knew that but he does get about and force errors and break up play. If the 3 behind the striker can find some sort of rythym, I can get behind an Ndidi/Mendy CM.....

    Most overrated City player

    "Controversial" is a bit of an understatement there buddy. Adolf Hitler invaded most of mainland Europe with less fuching controversy than that statement.
  13. Kinda the way things are going. With the NFL doing the same over here for a while now, it's expanded not only the sports popularity but the popularity of specific teams and with "soccer" growing over there it was only a matter of time.

    mahrez, in for a tough season.

    Couldn't really care less to be honest. Don't wish ill upon him and would be happy to see him do well but either way it doest matter in the slightest.

    Harvey Barnes - West Brom (loan)

    We could afford to give Vardy a bit more time as we weren't playing at such a high level. Look at Kramaric,Kaputska, Mendy, Musa and even Slimani..... Can you say they really got a decent run at it?
