    You guys won't win anything until you learn to defend without Kompany in the team. Pelligrini has to figure how to deal with Yaya & Silva in the same team........simply put your midfield is like Swiss cheese.

    Why is Ramsey making fan cams for City?

    Mangala for 33m, good grief. I remember he looked really good when he first joined, but he's not great at all.

    There are transfer fee's and then there are oil fees.

    Missed all the fall out from this game yesterday and today due to work.

    Some poor buys in there. De Bruyne is definitely not a £54m player and the deal looked fishy from the start.

    City sign whoever the hype boy is.

    Mangala being an example of that.

    I hate to bring up negatives especially after a good victory but is anyone else worried about Gibbs? Last night and the previous game he was bought on to try and shore the team up but awful positioning and lacklustre effort has actually served to put the team under more pressure. He's a decent lb but should not be brought on at LM in my opinion.

    well, Alexis, Welbeck, Jack, Sant and Rosicky are all out.
    who else would play LW ?

    Yeah we are bare bones at LW, but Gibbs was pretty poor. He's done well enough there coming on in other game but he was frightening yesterday.

    I never understand the point of the Gibbs substitution from Wenger lately. He comes on and is a headless chicken in some free role or something. If he is brought on to shore up the left side I cant see how he does that, hes very Welbeck-esque as he's just all over the place and never helping keep shape.

    Chamberlain could have been put there instead of in the middle through a formation change or just keeping Özil on the pitch. Also, Iwobi or Adelaide, though considering we wanted to keep a lead having Gibbs on wasn't too poor a decision disregarding hindsight.

    As much as Cazorla is a don I think it's clear to see that Ramsey potentially can offer us so much more. Wenger needs to see that wingers/forwards should play in their positions and midfielders should play in theirs.

    Wenger deserves a lot of credit if he takes this team to the title but he should also step down once he's done and usher in Guardiola if possible.

    It irks me to see people saying the BFG is back.

    He never went anywhere!
    It irks me when people say the BFG is back. He never went anywhere at all! People just don't appreciate his style of defending. The aggressive all action style of defence that Kos has is very easy to see and applaud. Per prefers a more positional style in the sense where he's in the right place to cut out danger before It develops instead of having to slide in. I remember reading a quote from a defender a while back. He said that the best defenders perfom the least sliding tackles because they're always there before the danger develops to cut it out before a last ditch tackle
    Is needed

    We don't appreciate Per enough. Plain and simple. I have his name on my shirt and I'm proud to wear it.

    We have the best defence In the league and we've shut out Muller Lewandowski Aguero etc just this season.

    Anyone who thinks we can do that with a bad CB at the heart of our defence clearly needs some perspective

    I hope you're not talking about Danny of Welbeck?

    Tbh honest, while I am totally happy we won.. i just watched the game this morning and I do believe we have a lot of work to do before we face Barca. On one side, we could have scored more goals, but on the other City could have put away theirs as well. If Barca gets those chances against us they will punish us. Hope we build from this
