Good win for Wolves, Bruno Lage doing a very good job there.

Heís done an excellent job there and since beating us they have been in very good form. Quite odd as in that game they looked very ordinary.
Going about the job quietly and nicely. The bastard

They're pretty tedious to watch and it's all based on defensive efforts, as a 40 year old virgin scores more. But he is doing a good job.

Like Nuno it's fine whilst you're winning but a couple of key injuries or the defensive side slips a bit the results start becoming 0-0s and 1-0 defeats and the tedium of the football becomes an issue. Agree it's going annoyingly well so far for them though.

Leeds useless. The whole league should be trying to relegate the barcodes.

Newcastle are usually capable of getting relegated without much help. Are they not still everyones  second
favourite club? ;)

If that is West Ham scoring in the 93rd minute at old Trafford then itís offside.

He looks lost and disinterested I really cannot see him lasting there, City will lose take a loss and move him on next year.

The way they play renders him average.

There are probably loads of players out there better suited for them, that would have been cheaper and more functional to suit their game. I honestly think it's a bizarre signing, their style and demands nullify the very things that made him stand out.

I also think Guardiola might be a bit shit when it comes to signing players to fit into his dull machine. I'd love to see him have to manage without everything stacked in his favour, he's a chippy bell end as it is, he'd be comedy gold under real pressure.

The only reason they bought grealish was because they Ďcouldí and had to show that.

Clearly hadnít thought about how theyíd use him.

Hey ho, though, itís £100m, itís almost a challenge they canít not rise to.

Heíll be somewhere like Everton or West Ham inside two years.

Fuck him, the rat.

We were all gutted when he left in the summer, but in hindsight, I think we're actually better off for it.

Tail end of last season, along with his rise in prominence after the Euros, we were very quickly becoming 'The Jack Grealish Show'. What we have now is the making of of a team of 11 players all playing for each other and on a level footing, capable of inflicting damage on our opponents (*when the front two remember where they put their shooting boots!). Last season, if an opponent marked Grealish out of the game, that was it, game over.

A classic case of getting too big for your boots - Took a major wrong turn in his career imo. Oh, and a little geeky Fantasy Football fact for you - Last season, he was averaging 5.57pts per 90mins, this season under Pep, 4.13pts.... Shame!

I used to play football with a brick wall. It always gave me the ball back.

Man City should have bought a brick wall. Cheaper :)

Citeh didn't need another midfielder/number ten. They needed Kane far more than they needed Grealish.
