Refs are shit, fooling ourselves though, blaming that on us being eliminated. The way we concede in Big games we are never going to win fuck all in Europe against the Big Guns. We don’t just concede we literally capitulate.
It is embarrassing watching the Keeper flap about in his area like a Pigeon with a broken Wing, defenders continuously slipping on their arse, or running in to each other. Nothing wrong with Ederson distribution. That is excellent. I think he has seen the Ball fly past him on a Par with Bravo stats from last season, in the last 3 games.
Said in the match thread Pep has only ever won 4 times in 25 away Knockout Champions League games. That is not just bad luck. There is something fundamentally wrong with the way he sets his sides up. Is it arrogance, naivety, or a bit of both ?
In 2 seasons after hundreds of millions spent, Guardiola has yet to reach the Semi - Finals and emulate his predecessor Pellegrini in the Champions League. That is a fact. Apparently this is the competition our owners prioritize above everything else. The reason we threw the chance of an FA Cup Semi-Final. And the reason we benched our best players for 75 minutes in a Derby we could have, and should have won by half time. making history winning the League in record time.
Personally I would be happy winning the League every year, I couldn’t really give a shit about a competition we have no chance of winning yet. If it hadn’t been Liverpool I wouldt have been arsed at all.I am more bothered our manager didn’t see how much Saturday Derby meant to us supporters, not playing any striker until late in the second half. Noticed tonight he didn’t bring Kun on until it was all but over. Might as well have started him in the Derby and we would already be Champions.
I feel like these last 3 results are all on him.
