    Yeah, at home we're contenders, but away we're just pretenders. In the last two seasons, City and us are the best home teams in the EPL.

    Right, but i don’t want to catch Liverpool. I just want them to suffer.

    The only striker of recent vintage who has come close to the output of Thierry in terms of scoring and providing IMO is Suarez. He obviously didn't have the electric pace and wasn't as good a dribbler but he was versatile enough to drift out wide or operate more centrally and he assisted a lot in his prime.

    Yeah short prime where he could do it all. Stayed at Ajax a bit too long.

    I gather we were better in the first half, because the second was bloody boring

    Encouraging performance today, bar three or four moments we looked very solid at the back.

    Going forward we had some clear patterns on display, not just balls down the left flank only. Xhaka with space to pass into is a must for the rest of the season.

    We should try and incorporate Özil, even if it means we bring him on later on to take advantage of the opposition chasing a goal. His work today with Auba was pleasing.

    No, Trilly got that ahead of me because I'm white.

    In chess the white almost always has an advantage after the opening. Black can try the Sicilian defense to gain a tempi!

    Where I live, if you move the white piece in chess first, you're accused of racism and sentenced to life in prison.

    Great game overall. Was impressed with everyone.
    We stopped creating as much when Aaron went off.

    Southamptons righ back Valery looks like a good raw talent, he could be really good, the way he dribled of two defenders before getting a corner in the first half was actually quite impressive from a fullback,

    I personally think we stopped creating when the scond half start as they changed to 4-4-2 and press us high. We could not really cope much from their press bar a few moments where we can counter. The counter chances are only created when Özil and aubameyang came on, and to be honest auba should have scored some the chances.

    I might be a bit biased but I personally think Özil makes our counter ticks simply because he has good ball retention and does not misplaced pass under pressure. Unfortunately once again, his pressing is non-existent. Some of his flicks though...makes alot of grown man gasps.

    I think Ramsey works when teams use low block on us while Özil works when we need to get out of high pressing system...

    You're right man. I was rewatching the game now because I am usually a harsh Ramsey critic but today I came in here shocked to see everyone hated his performance. I see now they did shift to a 442 and it made all the difference. In fact they turned on the pressure at times because of this. Re Özil. Definitely, we look slicker on the counter with him.
