    It's really bizarre -- almost as if he forgets that scoring more goals than your opponent is the ultimate target in the sport.
     
  2. I don't think Guardiola is to blame for last night's defeat, we had enough decent chances to win the game, after me declaring my love for Sergio, he had a shocker, it doesn't happen all that often, and will hopefully fire him up for Sunday.

    Ultimately, a highly unusual mistake from Walker did for us.

    It's definitely not his fault, it's a freak accident that a team on 72 PL points in mid-Feb took ~20 shots against a League One side and lost.

    It's only worrying when your side isn't creating chances either.

    The spitter has been outed. I can see an Adam Teese situation developing and local pizza companies better be prepared for an unexpected rush of orders....

    We had 33 shots against United and took them apart over and over according to the huge xG, but for some reason that wasn't a freak accident. ;)

    Probably because you were defensively poor also. That part isn't a freak accident.

    City's offensive impotence was a freak, one-off event. Our defensive mistakes were part of a very clear pattern.

    You sure you're not a Blue Mooner?

    2nd loss at home in about 23 games.

    Touché. They should definitely get the Pep Out banners unfurled.

    That game definitely was a freak accident, the two centre-backs literally handed the ball to United players in the final third. Those mistakes are in a different category to poor positioning and botched offside traps you usually see leading to goals. Besides, this team has rarely dominated a big game like they did against United, as Makingtrax said the disparity in xG is something you'd expect to see in a game like Man City v Wigan.

    I don't believe in freak accidents in football, not unless we're talking about a lightening bolt striking the ball in mid-flight and diverting it's course. 2 CB handing the ball to an opposition team is a terrible mistake not an accident.

    City gets meeting with FA because of dangerous tackles after Pep tried to murder ref for giving a player red for tackle.

    Pathetic club. If you rate Pep as human being or some sort of contributor to this sport you hate football.

    The fact that you allowed us 33 shots at goal shows your defence were a lot worse, but fortunately our shooting was not good enough and you probably have the best keeper in the world, who not for the first time, saved your arse.
