I mean we are literally on last season’s points tally with 6 matches to go. Were you expecting us to be Pep’s city immediately? We were always going to have ups and downs.
Peps city? What the fuk do you think???

We all know what happened at the end of last season.

I really think when you leave as big gaps as our fullback’s do you need to put the lone DM system in the bin. Too much ground for our DM to cover and the CB’s are left so exposed on the counter and during transition/quick turnovers. We need a top DM to play alongside Bissouma/Bentancur in a 2

It's more the fact we don't play an out and out DM.

If we had a DM that would drop between the two centre packs and allow them to cover the wide areas it might help.

But our DM spends more of the game in the opposition defensive third than he does in ours.

This is all on Ange. Even besides VDV slipping. Starting Bissouma who everyone knows cannot defend a counter for his life & is in horrid form as it ends up working predictably. Meanwhile we keep leaving an actual #6 on the bench because "well he's leaving anyway." Ridiculous man management. Bissouma has been pitiful since his against Luton in October.

Our biggest problem in this game is our forward play, first 20 minutes we should have fashioned two goals but our forwards just don’t seem switched on

Nah, I don’t believe In the neg rep system, I rather have a discussion.

I now agree with this post as I feel it’s the system that needs tweaking but I wouldn’t say our players are overrated. 👍
Yeah it is, you can’t rely on a 2 cbs defending every attack. The weirdest part is you are meant to have a packed midfield yet teams walk through our midfield every single attack

VAR will fix terrible missed calls, they said. It'll be way better, they said.

Need to be so much better in defensive transition.

Either we need to press faster once we lose it, or we need to be faster in tightening gaps in the centre

I want to see someone to clearly take one of our players out in the box and see if we get a penalty, I think not.
