    why does sanchez turn useless in a big game though?
    Tbh most of his games go like this:

    Work like a nutcase for 90 mins, make loads of runs but give the ball away quite a lot...then a moment of magic.

    Would be devastating but if you asked us if we'd be happy with a point before kick off we'd all say yes
    In all other circumstances, I'd prefer you lot to win, but I have a fiver on 1-1

    We've hardly been attacking them so not really his fault. He has been off though but nothing to critique him yet after the way we've been playing. Ox has been just as bad

    I just think we lack the mental strength to win this match, can see a 2-1 to city

    Oh I agree, but it's not like he always consistently dribbling round people, he does give the ball away a lot but makes up for it with moments of magic.

    Was just saying that he isn't playing much different to usual

    Yeah that's pretty much it. He's not really had much to work with and when he does get the ball he's usually isolated around 2 of their defenders. We need much more possession for him to start to click but I wouldn't go for that and sacrifice the stability we have right now.

    Interesting to see that when Zabaleta goes forward from RB, the remaining 3 defenders spread out as though in a wide 3-5-2, something we should learn from

    Will admit that although Sanchez has been quite poor with his possession, his defensive contribution has been solid so far

    Ox lack of ball retention makes him a liability.

    Good work rate, but keeps losing it

    city's passing has been laughable.
    never seen them give the ball away this much.

    oh well, they'll still score 89 and 90+2.

    His decision making is poor too, misses key passes by spending too much time on the ball and then just ends up passing it back when he actually manages to maintain possession. He needs to stop trying these flicks and think he can outrun their whole team too ffs.




    ****ing hell man we never learn, already got 7 of our players in their half. We're 1-0 up at the Etihad, stay back!
