Paying yourself money through dodgy in house sponsorship isn’t boosting revenue 🤣

Grealish looks bang average in this team.

I’ve read a couple things about this and I’m not sure where I stand, but essentially Grealish is really good at keeping the ball in this system which is key to City’s game of recycling possession from one side to another.

That finish of his was really shit there but I think the main thing was that we all expected Grealish to be making those darting runs he made for Villa and Pep doesn’t use him for that because the opportunity to lose possession is higher, but what Grealish does do is carry the ball deeper anyway, draws defenders in and then releases to de Bruyne or the full back to switch it.

Feel like the question is did you really need to spend £100m for someone to do that but away from the price tag journos/tactical blogs seem to think he fits into City’s system quite well even if he hasn’t shown the exceptional individuality that you see from Foden or Mahrez.

When he was at villa he was their best player. Now at city he isnt, he's surrounded by great players. Hes said himself it has been a struggle for him. He probably needs to get his confidence back

Alonso and Sarr is such an obvious weak spot for us. 

Pulisic and Ziyech are also having no influence on the game... For me they are too lightweight for a game like this, easily brushed off the ball

Had high hopes for Ziyech but he's been underwhelming for Chelsea? 

Should have come to us first :ph34r:

Him and Pulisic have both been underwhelming... compared to the likes of Hazard for example who could not only retain the ball but then be creative enough to carve out chances or go on to score himself.. we need to make changes

Yeah, we’re too negative for my liking, that being said we well could have been leading if our final ball and attacking play was better. 

Alonso is a big worry on the left, that’s where the goal is coming from for City. This game is far too fast for Alonso.
