Unless he's wearing West Ham jersey.

Ask Song and Noble

Page 118 of the pdf quoted above.

One for LookMumICan'tSeeIt and Bridge'sARightMune to mull over.

I thought that should have been a booking... Doesn't hide our poor performance though.
Cheers for the mention.

Clichy, Mangala and Fernando should be nowhere near this team.

Hardly surprising that a midfield with Fernando, Toure and Navas is getting dominated.

You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline. It helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer.

Manuel probably thinks we were unlucky in the first half and outplayed West Ham

Agree. I still remain very on the fence regarding Navas, he just seems very easy to read and defend against at the moment.Good against teams with a high line but not great otherwise. Milner is much better at making half a yard and getting a cross away against sides who sit deep.

Where did I say it did?

I am optimistic that we will not be as bad in the second half.

Come on, City. It is still there for the taking.

That sounds reasonable. Dzeko has been wasteful and is adding nothing. Either Milner or Jovetic should be on at restart but I doubt the Count will do it !!

I don't know what's happened to Clichy but he has to come off. Mangala just saved his bacon at the end of the half. Kolarov is shit defensively too but at least he offers something going forward. Jovetic for Dzeko too. Milner was shit against CSKA in the second half but I'd be thinking of bringing him on for Navas if things don't perk up. We're only allowed three substitutions.....

TBF he's not getting much help from his teammates is he. As a team, we're hiding when they come with three or four players against the ballholder. More support needed, a decent shift one might even say.

I'm kind of impressed with how West Ham are defending. At times, they have three players in our half when we start rolling the ball which makes it impossible for us to slowly pick up pace. We have the capacity to deal with that but that requires some effort from the players, which we're honestly not seeing.

And Dzeko's having one of those days as well.

"In my career so far it's the most important goal. You score the goal in the last minute to win the title. You're not sure if that's ever going to happen in your career again. I wish I could tell you how I did it but I can't. I thought for all the world that Mario was going to have a go himself but he just moved it on one more and it fell at my feet and I just thought: 'Hit the target, hit it as hard as you can and hit the target.' And it went in."

Those 3 are so bad. This could get messy today unless we decide to turn up. Problems to solve.

Plus West Ham are due a couple of yellow cards soon. They must be.
