    I don't hate him at all, I think he is a decent player and nowhere near as bad as some make out. However he is just painfully slow, twice yesterday that I counted he was left trailing by yards as their midfielders tore up the pitch. He isn't in great form and our midfield balance isn't working so why not try someone else there.

    I just don't see it Sif. Struggling to remember many exciting games under Unai. The football was boring even during the unbeaten run for most part.

    • We looked better tactically
    • We looked better without the ball (pressing, anticipation in the challenge/positioning in the 1st half).
    • We looked better defensively. Seemed pretty resilient and more aggressive. We would have conceded if this was last season or the season before IMO.
    • Xhaka has been clearly told not to dive in challenges and he actually didn't. He didn't get booked too so the message has come across unlike what you all seem to think with Emery's communication.
    • Youth propsects looked good (Martinelli, Saka, Willock).
    • Chambers has improved big time. Most improved player so far. He's a good footballer and is intelligent. He has also improved on his agression which I thought he lacked previously.
    • We took our foot off the gas in the 2nd half. Complacency started to kick in so we need to keep the concentration levels up and hunger THROUGHOUT the game.
    • Front line don't seem to be in sync with each other. They seemed to be too far away from each other yesterday and didn't anticipate the attacking runs.

    I have no hope of those results... 12 from 15 seems too much for the way we are playing

    And failed to beat any of them.

    Our 4 wins came against Newcastle (1 goal margin), Villa (1 goal margin), Burnley (1 goal margin) and Bournemouth (1 goal margin). We have 2 clean sheets in 8.

    The way I see it, is City are in what is from their perspective, a crisis. They literally have no first team defenders available bar their own version of Mustafi in Otamendi. They'll struggle against any well organised team.

    Bar Liverpool, the standard in the PL this season is shocking. Same as the season Leicester won the league. Emery's over-engineering it. This is a great opportunity to take advantage and we have to expect more.

    I finally watched some highlights last night. More players seem to be running harder-Pepe was motoring on occasion and Xhaka carried the ball some distance by actually running. What did make me laugh was that we would tackle and break up play but players were running so fast that they ran iast the loose ball :lol:. We still lack guile and cohesion for a sustained amount of time, so it's not pretty.

    Surely everyone is entitled to their own opinion aren’t they. I’m sure your opinion will differ from many others but as none of us can predict the future shall we just accept being in a good position prior to a two week break.

    But he is stating a fact that calls for concern instead of applause.

    Both Spu*s and United are very poor. We should have easily won both matches.

    That was an United-esque performance, but thanks god we are a better team then them and so we beat Bournemouth.
    It was worrying though. You can't defend a 1-goal lead at home against ****ing Bournemouth.

    football will come after! We need everyone on board as much as possible to help us get back into the elite competition of Europe. Why be dickheads & complain when we are winning & haven’t really got going in the league!

    Because if our performances don't pick up theres a very good chance we wont be top4 at the end of the season.
    Why do you assume we will "get going"? I know we have defenders coming back but our attack is just as dismal as our defense.

    Our team is a shadow of its former self, that's why its hard to celebrate

    I think, in the attacking sense, our midfield is the real problem here. There’s not enough creativity and supply. We’re relying on our wingers for that, which is good because we’re using our width, but we need to create from the center as well because we’re becoming very one-dimensional.

    Ceballos doesn’t seem quite up to the task and he doesnt even play every game either. There are games where we rely on Torreira, Xhaka and Guendouzi to create chances and that is just abysmal..

    Completely short sighted view this. The poster you replied to specifically highlighted how the points tally, the games played and the position we are in has papered over the cracks.
    If we're lying 6th in May and we've played the same way the whole season, many people on here are going to look pretty silly with all these "but we're winning" statements.

    When? My patience wouldn't be running thin if there was a positive trend in our play (regardless of results), but I haven't seen it. I was hoping a successful transferwindow would be the kick-off of an improvement in style, but the good games in the PL under Emery can be counted on one hand.

    Think you're nitpicking now. Let's see if his discipline is maintained in the next fixture..

    Lol playing against some nobodies. We will be back to normal as soon as we get a decent opponent, just re-watch the Chelsea final game.
