It's clearly not malicious either as you say, just clumsy which makes it all the more unfortunate!
La Ligaís new referee guidelines made a statement that all tackles to the achilles from behind are straight red starting this season as a way to try and protect players from such tackles.

A surprisingly good result despite the uncertainty looming over the team and what image they would be showing in the first game. Itís too early though but the big noticeable difference to me was the overall change in attitude and seriousness from the players to face the game. I hope this can last far longer (I am not that optimistic though) as we had some lapses of good game, good pressure and passing. We never looked like losing control of the game in the second half even with one men down. The build-up around the box for the third goal reminded me a bit to the B team when we won the double. Some nice football. Our first goal came from a dubious foul by Casemiro though.

Having said that our flaws are still there.

Our fullbacks leave too much space behind them that Celta rarely exploded but I can imagine what more paced and organized teams could do. Varane but especially Ramos are too slow to anticipate or block. Celta were not much of treat in attack but that shacking defence stress me out. Iím intrigued to see what players or formation Zidane will use for the next game with our thin midfield. I hope Bale and Casemiro can keep this form though they were the best on the pitch.

City: 30 shots, 10 on target
Spurs: 3 shots, 2 on target

Proper FIFA match capped off with VAR crushing City's hopes and dreams again. Love it

Fair enough on the achilles challenges being cracked down upon, it can only be a good thing for the game and the players overall. Definitely a positive change!

I agree 100% with you regarding the attitude of the team, it was as if nothing had happened and the animosity and tension that's been brewing over the last year or more was totally gone. There was a feeling of optimism, cohesion and even joy in the way the team played and acted with each other. It was surprising to see but in a good way! Bale played with some intensity and even anger in his performance, I don't know if he's desperate to show Zizou that he deserves a spot in the side or if he's still genuinely pissed off?

Yes I noticed that too, Odriozola got caught out a few times and didn't track back enough to cover his space which allowed Celta in a few times. Marcelo was better than recent games though and hopefully this is an indicator of things to come this season going by last season's poor showing from him. He still needs to improve but I was quite happy with him in this game. Varane and Ramos were a bit iffy and they weren't really tested all that much. As you say, against better quality opposition they could get exposed quite easily.

Of all the teams I fear this season, I think Atleti are going to be a handful with Felix in their ranks.

I can see a similar lineup with the front 3 staying the same and Modric being replaced by Isco in midfield. I'd like to see Militao and Mendy get a run out in place of Marcelo and Ramos, see how they get on in a home game that should on paper be a comfortable victory.

Agreed. When Salah didnít have his shooting boots on last season Mane really stepped up and kept us in the title run. Brilliant player and proving to be a bargain as the years go on.

hasn't missed a beat since last season, esp the last couple of months where he scored some crucial goals that helped him top the scoring charts. Being on international duty hasn't seemed to alter his form either and he's picked up from where he's left off. Has great fitness levels too.

Just gotta hope he can stay fit during crucial times of the season as I'd say he's our key player.

Would have taken a point against Chelsea beforehand, after that second half performance though I'm gutted we didn't win.

Our pressing game was magnificent in the second half, one or two passes then we carved Chelsea right open, our decision making let us down though. Maddison was excellent but that miss and some of his decision making was atrocious, Maguire gone but Soyuncu has stepped up to the plate in the first two games, quality again today.

The potential is there with us, just need to get the right system in place and hopefully we can become more consistent.

As for Chelsea they bombarded us in the first half, second half though proved that they have a number of weaknesses.

Re: Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga, Serie A, Ligue 1, SPL, MLS (Look, It's Every Damn League + Domestic Cup Competitions)

Yeah, one of those weaknesses was playing 120mins in crazy temperatures close to midnight on Wednesday, as Leicester were tucked in bed waiting a week to play their next game...

We were fortunate to get a point today. First 20mins we were great. Next 10mins we were good. Then it was all Leicester. They should have buried us a few times in the second half.

A lot of imporvement needed. Some of it has to come down to Wednesday, but there were some players letting the team down. Azpi is trying but he has been terrible. Absolutely terrible. Reece James will have a good chance to take that spot when he's back from injury. Willian was a disgrace. Came on and looked like he wanted to be anywhere else. Loses the ball, throws his hands up in the air and doesn't try to win it back. He needs to go. Pedro just became a liability as he tired. Jorginho as well...

We need to win next Saturday. No more excuses. Not even about the performance. Just need a win.

I don't know any actual Wolves supporters but I hope they get a good result tomorrow so we can stay at the top of the table where we belong.
