Good first 45 mins, shame the half lasted 49.

We had no chance as soon as that team was revealed. We made a decent fist of it for 40 odd minutes, but no way were we not getting battered with that line up. God knows what that Frankenteam was by the end.

I was beginning to warm to Zaniolo, but after tonight he can fcuk back to Italy.

Never a 4-1.

That wank wall and Chambers trying to dribble out of defence were the difference between a narrow defeat and what will look like a tonking to the casual observer.

Ultimately resulted in the usual hiding we get up there. I hope the illness rumours are true otherwise itís a pretty poor showing in the end. We canít be shipping 4 odd goals to the teams in and around us.

Onwards and upwards and need a response and win at the weekend.

Really didnít think we were that bad. Looked good on the ball and dangerous when broke. The issue was we made 3 individual errors that were all punished and we lacked a bit of quality to stem the tide at times

In context, given the team we put out a pretty standard result. Some good stuff but overwhelmed by a club that spent much more than us and cheated in doing so.
Which makes December's result all the more impressive.

Not sure about that. Olsen made 3 or 4 very good saves as well, and they missed another couple of easy chances.

I really wish that the commentators wouldn't gush over Man City as if they don't have 115 charges against them.

Egh, we'll never win there. Did OK in spurts. Curious to hear about the team selection from Unai afterwards.

Onto Brentford. Win that, I'll forget about this.

Whilst it's hard to keep the concentration levels  at the tempo all the time, there were just too many mistakes in dangerous areas. 2nd and 4th were from blatant errors and even the 3rd came from a weak tackle on Rodri.

Disappointing because their 2nd was Zaniolo ducking out of the way of a pretty poor free kick by Foden and 4th was Chambers fucking about on the ball. Deserved to lose but some silly mistakes made it look worse than it was. Some good performances (and some poor ones).
