Agreed our spending has been poor but if we have money still then at least we should be allowed to spend as we wish. Chelsea and Man City were afforded that luxury that turned them into big teams with no penalties and now it isn't allowed. They grow and the rest just try and hang in there.
Gave Townsend my MOTM simply because he won us a couple of fouls in good attacking areas thereby making him our most dangerous player.Protest "Gray" vote as Onyango wasn't an option. Could not bring myself to vote for any of them. I know Citeh are good but we are an absolute shambles.
We were cowardly with possession nearly everytime we had it.Disagree with some of that. Thought we showed them too much respect, not enough pressure on them when they were in possession and we used the ball like a hot potato time and time again. It was like a training session for them.
They are a great side and we are not , we can however use that ball better than that and show a bit more fight.
Why not play Simms instead of Rondon?I just wished the inexperience kid had longer than 2 minutes during his introduction.

Put everyone behind the ball but had no intention of trying to actually press and win it.
Let city toy with us for 90mins.
How can we look back at how that panned out and think we got anything right?
Zero ambition and zero leadership from the sideline.
You honestly saving we tried to even get anything out of that game then? Maybe just being more adventurous when having the ball, maybe not just sitting back waiting for them to eventually score which was always going to happen. We had 20 odd % possession. Laughable. If you're happy with that then fair enough but it was a pathetic performance.What would "give it a go" mean or look like? Rondon and Richy up top? Iwobi and Townsend up top? Just Delph in midfield?
