A Bald Fraud's Chester City

Not even City can cope with losing De Bruyne, Gundogan and Rodri. It seems that now that he has to do KDB's and Gundo's job as well Rodri is more vulnerable to getting booked and actually getting punished for the multitude of tactical fouls he's incorporated in his game, something he always seemed to be able to escape.
Let's hope the slippery bastard has finally lost his teflon.

A calm and collected individual.
Laporte, Mahrez, Gundogan, Palmer out. Kovacic, Nunes, Gvardiol, Doku in. Leadership and quality decline when assessing those players. On a scale the first 4 names are higher in quality and pedigree than the later 4. Throw in KDB's injury and the City team is levels below the team that rolled their way to the treble in the later half of last season. Also Gvardiol has been pretty piss poor. None of their singings have elevated them and come close to replacing the players that left.

I also think the drop off is exposing certain players. Akanji for one seems a generic player who can be exposed if he doesn't have enormous quality around him.

They lost one of the best midfielders of last 10 years in Gundogan. They lost Mahrez who was a great scorer and creative winger. Kdb is injured again and it leaves them short in creativity. They created 3 chances the whole match 2 of them by Haaland came on same play. When they played us they also created nothing. If Rodri gets hurt their record is so poor without him they will struggle for trophies.

I know they won treble but they were susceptible last year in league and this year their team is weaker. With Chelsea, United, Newcastle struggling and Liverpool lacking balance we can not squander another golden chance as another of Mik’s never ending free hits

I was browsing the city Blue Moon forum after the match. One of them posted "2900 guests online right now- that's how bad we were" 🤣

On the forum they're absolutely fuming and in shock because obviously this never happens. They looked awful last night. I couldn't believe what I was seeing.

They always cry whenever they are not top of the table sometimes even when they are. Good lesson to the Positivity Nazis on here, City fans just won the treble; go on their forum you would think they are a disaster.

Newsflash for Tet’s sex cult; football fans are emotional and fickle. Part of a manager’s job title is to get torn yo shreds by fans and media when he gets things wrong; the same is true for your pretty young manager

If they can stick around until KDB returns then they'll fancy themselves as the KDB-Haaland combo is pretty much impossible to defend, you just have to hope that one of the two have an off day.

They're probably fully aware that this is the weakest they've been in years and the brief to Pep is probably to try his best, you can see they've been rebuilding over the last two years.

Pep never stayed in one club so long as now in 115 charges FC.

In Barcelona he inherited Rijkaard's team filled with world class players.
In Bayern he was successor to Jupp Henckes who won the treble immediately before Pep arrived.
115 charges FC had already very strong squad when he arrived.

In Barcelona and Bayern he didn't have to rebuild because he stayed 3-4 years.

Let’s see what he will do now and how successful he will be in rebuilding the team.
Of course, some additional FFP breaches and 300-400 million pounds of new transfers would accelerate the rebuild.
The same thing that helped Mancini and Pellegrini before him.

A key component of the winning runs that make them end up as champions is KDB not being part of the team, so they're up for some disappointment.
