Barry is the main culprit there. That's his jurisdiction. Starts off in the wrong position then completely fails to attack the ball. Looks like a GEEK who has been forced to play a contact sport at school, in February and in kit four sizes too large. Infact just about everybody is out of position, besides Zaba, Garcia and Nasri.

Toure looks like is genuinely confused at what his role is, he starts off determined to mark man-to-man (Tevez? too.), gives up and ends up looking lost.

As Seabs put it a few pages back, IS A CATASTROPHE.

A positive for City is that errors in zonal-marking are easy to diagnose. If they ever manage to get it down, their size and power will pretty much mean no more conceding from set-pieces.

A negative would be that they're all but out. Again.

Finally, is Mancini's poor grasp of English a worry for you City fans? Admittedly I only seem to catch interviews with him when he's APOPLETIC WITH RAGE but his comprehension seems to be really subpar. I assume he must really struggle getting messages through to players, especially with such a hodgepodge of nationalities in the mix. Somebody get that guy Rosetta Stone.

Re: UEFA Champions/Europa League 2012-13 Thread

If City don't beat Madrid, they should just purposely tank at the Westfalenstadion to make sure they don't go into the Europa League.

I'm praying we get through and a big reason why is to avoid Thursday nights, because those Danes are definitely finishing bottom.

So Joel approves of match fixing? Strip him of his moderator bar imo.

United to do the business in Braga tonight. But knowing us we'll go 1-0 down inside 3 minutes.

Re: UEFA Champions/Europa League 2012-13 Thread

Hopefully we just get this done tonight even if it means going weaker against villa if need be.

Going into the last 2 CL games and nopt needing to do much would be welcome after last year.

Re: UEFA Champions/Europa League 2012-13 Thread

I'd rather prioritise the Villa match. We can finish the group off easily with 3 points at home to Cluj. Even if we rest a few key players we should have a strong enough team to get a point tonight. Just care for an entertaining match if I'm being honest. Anderson and Nani will probs both start. Hopefully Hernandez too. Put Rooney, RVP, Valencia, Young and Rio on the bench.

I wouldnt risk it, not after that fiasco
