PS I also wore my mancityfans.net black "were not really here" shirt today as my wife got juice on my colours is it now a lucky shirt which I have to wear to every game? Are there any left in XXXL?
I keep hearing that its the tactics fault Ireland has been below par this season.
Ireland is just going through some lesser form.
Ireland was asked to do the same job today as he is asked to do now numerous times last season. He still gets forward the same. He was the furtherest an upfield on a few attacks. Little has changed in his role. He's still playing central midfield. He's not playing a holding rle, he's still getting forward. Its not like he's suddenly been switched to the wing or left back.
