    Think Valencia offered him a quicker pathway to first team football. We probably would have had him in the U23s while Xhaka and Guendouzi get beaten for pace every game. At least they weren't ****ing around with Azeez and gave him the big deal but for all Azeez potential (I think he has genuine WC potential), he strikes me as a bit complacent sometimes, like he plays at 70% every game. I have seen him a couple of times looking motivated and he's very dominant so unless it's a case of him often being younger, I'd like to see more of that from him. Then I'd be clamouring for him more to see first team football. As it stands, needs to work more IMO. Cook for the U23s for a bit.

    And I repeat, asking for at least a shot on target isn't unreasonable. Nor is it excusable for our players to be so unfit.

    Even if we take all our problems into account, that kind of 'performance' from our team should never be acceptable. There are teams in League One who wouldn't surrender as meekly.

    Teams in League One have players with more fight than ours on the pitch, genuinely.

    The last few years we have somehow managed to build up a rather large collection of players who aren't very skilful with the ball, but provide zero fight when not on the ball...we are a one of a kind club really!

    If City were at their best and we lost 3-0 then fair enough, but when they are beating us 3-0 on a bad day it's unacceptable..

    This. Add also this was a 3-0 score with us having zero full chances (one half chance for Auba the only sniff we got). They scored 3 but also had 3 clear 1v1 with Leno (Sterling, Mahrez and Aguero) and a few other chances. The sad reality is if they were actually clinical they could have scored 5 or 6 and it wouldn't have been undeserved.

    Bro I see potential in Guendouzi but he is so raw it’s unreal. His good points are that he can pass the ball under pressure and his confidence.

    However he should never have been a first team regular at this stage. He should’ve been a cup player or even sent out on loan to Ligue 1 or the bundesliga when it was clear to see that he needs a lot of time to develop.

    A lot of our hyped youngsters should no way be first team regulars for a top 4 challenging team. Nketiah should be out on loan..same with Nelson and even Willock.

    Saka imo is not ready to make impacts on the biggest games yet as well.

    I’m not hating on our youngsters. The ones I have mentioned all have potential, but they still have lots of room for development before they can reach the level where we can compete for the top 4 with them.

    People being cool with Saka being our starting LW next season are the same ones who will complain when we once again fail to get into the CL.

    Our youngsters shouldn’t be throw in the deep end when the truth is they are just starting to learn how to compete at the professional level.

    Just take a look at Chelsea they have Mount,Abraham,Hudson-Odoi top talented youngsters...in fact more talented than our kids atm(Mount & Abraham previously did the business in the champ). Yet that didn’t stop them from signing established stars like Ziyech and Werner.

    I don’t think this changes much if anything. City have beaten us by 2 or 3 literally every game for the past three-plus years. Total status quo.

    Emery would’ve got slaughtered for that front line. I know Arteta doesn’t seem to want Auba centrally but it means shifting Saka, a player thats been dominant on the left to the opposite wing.

    Premier league starts

    Win - 28
    Henderson - 22
    Fabinho - 15
    Ox - 13
    Milner - 7
    Keita - 4

    So exactly how is fabinho running the premier league from 15 starts? Henderson and wijnaldum have started far more.

    Give credit where its due

    I would guess it has something to do with covid? The club has probably marked what is regarded as safe places where it's certain the players won't get it and want to keep the players in these safe places. Guess we didn't trust any areas in Manchester so we decided to fly in as late as we could get away with?

    I said he's their most consistent midfielder. Obviyhe missed a lot games due to injury. meanwhile the likes of Wijnadum and Henderson are rotated regularly

    Can you imagine City outplayed us even when they where not a full rhytm they could have won by 7-0 we created nothing because they are a much much better team then we are. We are a midtable team at best for the moment.
