City have scored 5+ goals in a PL match for the tenth time since the start of last season - twice that of any other club.

Just read that since last time united scored 5 in a domestic game we’ve done it 27 times. Is it any wonder I mock this thread every week.

But that doesn't really matter since we are taking 25% more shots than the team with the 2nd most shots in the league. Averaging 20 shots and 3 goals per game. On pace for 114 goals in the league this year.

we score goals. loads of them. but we should score more. like i will keep repeating, it’s not about the games we win easily, where the score line looks fantastic but the tight games and we need to be fucking ruthless in every game if we are to win those.
pep says this on a regular basis - even after we’ve scored five or six. so keep on laughing at him at don’t be fucked off when we lose a game we should win because we have fluffed our chances.

What is it with you and thread titles - is it an attempt to disguise the fact you live in a capital?

Losing games because of missed chances is part of football. It's bound to happen sooner or later. It happens to all the best teams as well, not just us.

But it's not the only reason a team loses a game, you also have to fuck up for them to score. And this whole thread would be no different if you had made it about defensive fuckups. They are bound to happen, just like missed chances. While back in reality, we're playing great all over the field; better than our record breaking last season.

What so many people are saying to you is quit whinging about it when we're beating teams by 3+ goals every week! And don't become an annoying fuckhead who turns around with an "I told you so" when we lose a game with a few missed chances. That is guaranteed to happen in this sport. Just enjoy the moment mate, because times like this don't last forever for any team.

https://understat.com/team/Manchester_City/2018

Some useful stats to see how we are doing, as I love this site.

Interestingly enough, our xG was higher in the Burnley match than against Southampton.

Kun the leader for the team in xG and goals, yet his scoring rate is lower than it should be, while Raz with the a higher goals to xG rate.

Not surprisingly Jesus with the highest xG and lowest conversion rate. Bernardo 2nd worst, and Mahrez 3rd (gathering it's gotten better as of late).

As for xA (assists expected to create goals) Merlin #1, while Razza tied with Mendy for our best in assist total (Mendy seemed up top months ago) yet Silva's actual total is quite low for what it should be.

Cheers mate. Was brilliant to see. Last time I took the wife we lost to Chelsea in something like the only home loss in 18 months. I feared the worst hah.

It can be argued that with an out and out finisher - a la Gerd Muller, Lineker etc, we'd score a lot more. But you have to remember that those players would never get in a Pep team in 10 million years. Maybe Shearer or Wrighty would have the right dynamic?

Aguero,s record stands up with the best of all time that's why this thread is an utter embarrassment to this board and all the scouse and rag cunts looking in will be pissing themselves . What if any team that's get relegated in any given season took their chances ? they wouldn't get fucking relegated would they ? but we are breaking every fucking record going !?!?!?! what a load of fucking bullshit started by a spoilt cunt who never goes to a game EMBARRASSING !!!
