  1. Commentator: Welcome to the Etihad where today “City” hosted Leicester. Leicester were unchanged from their usual XI of players I haven’t researched and Jamie Vardy whilst City were without several regulars meaning that they had to field their new £40m centre back and the £60m winger they signed from the team they’re playing. *cuts to full time* City scored 2 goals today today [insert former Manchester City player here], weren’t they amazing? [Ex-Manchester City player] What an amazing strike from Mahrez but let’s talk about the goals they conceded, such poor defending, they need new players. Host: But they’ve just spent £40m on a centre back. What about Leicester’s display? *confused silence* Host: Well over at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium...
  2. Some quite smart stuff under the radar too today, I liked Amartey pushing up from centre back to the right wing to compete for headers from our goal kicks.
  3. You’ve gone peak Finnegan here, Vardy has scored one of the best backheeled goals you’ll see and your favourite part is the left back pressing?!
  4. Brilliant tactics from Rodgers today. I’ve been one of his biggest critics but his game plan was clear and despite an early set back it was clear we were going to get opportunities playing that way as the game went on. Clearly learned some lessons from last season. I’ve no idea what people are talking about when they say he gives the big teams too much respect, the problem he’s always had here (and at Celtic before) is that he gives them too little respect and tries to beat them at their own game. No sign of that today. Masterclass, well done Brendan.
  5. It’s boring but it’s effective. This game last season we went in 2-1 down at half time and it could have been 6-1.
  6. It’s one thing doing it when the time has elapsed but when we’ve not even had the allotted time?
  7. Walker should be off for that. No attempt to win the ball. Clear DOGSO
  8. Anyone else annoyed by the 40 second replay whilst the game is going on?
  9. I’m not enjoying this, it’s rubbish. As others have said this was a good chance for us to have a go with them having so many players out and Brendan has come up with the most boring of boring shapes for us. But last season we came here, played way too open and got hammered. The team’s confidence was then totally shot. Before we went 1-0 up here last season we should have been about 5-0 down. They battered us. So far today they’ve had 2 half chances and scored one. I don’t like it and I can’t abide Rodgers tactically but I see the merit in what he’s doing.
  10. I’m not sure that’s fair at all, I’d say the opposite is true of Rodgers most of the time. The way he set the team up at the Etihad and at home to Liverpool last season was suicidal. Way too open in key areas. We’re set up today like we did under Puel (positionally if not by formation) in those big games where you’re right we tended to do better. We did get beaten 5-1 here under Puel when we tried to defend too deep.
  11. £30m is absolutely horrendous business in this market. Burnley have had our pants down if we pay that. Realistically he’s not a starter unless we play with a back 3. Evans isn’t exactly looking like he’s verging on retirement so unless we’re planning to lose Soyuncu in the near future or we’re planning a permanent switch to a back 3 he’s a squad player for at least the next year. Obviously we need squad players - he’s a perfectly decent PL centre back and much better player than Bennett for example - but the point is we need squad players plural. We’re short in so many areas and we’re talking about spending £30m at a time when we know money is tight on a player who doesn’t obviously improve our first XI.
  12. Really looks like he’s being put through his paces there
  13. And the inevitable impact on our public services. We’re still cleaning up the mess from 2008. There’s an entire generation of people who will be paying higher taxes for worse public services for their entire working lives.
  14. He will set up a goal as a substitute in November and people will be asking for him to get another chance.
  15. Another chaotic game this weekend and easily the most entertaining game we’ve had against Burnley in recent memory. Tielemans once again the difference maker, he’s an absolute class act and needs to retain this level of responsibility and maintain this level when Maddison comes back. Barnes is on the cusp of being a very special player. It can still go one of two ways for him but the upside on him is like nothing we’ve had from a young player since Heskey.
