At least we were the top scores! Why the hell did Rafa put in Ferreira? His last CL game? I did enjoy seeing Luiz in the position he should be playing - midfielder.


idfnl - Thank you for the link!

DL, no reason to point and laugh. I mean you have Torres as a striker and Rafa as a coach I'm sure you're feeling the club trolls you enough mwink[1].gif

What is worse is the Juve goal seemed offside lol

PS It's just a bruise, Messi will be back

DLester's small claim to fame is that I saw the first match Mourinho coached for Chelsea way long ago, it was a friendly but still......

I think I recall that, he surprised everyone by starting Geremi or something?

Ferreira is reliable. Give the guy credit, he's always ready. He should have left Chelsea 5 years ago. How can you just ride the bench that many years without wanting to play?

What did you think of the doc?

RM, havent followed closely. Why has Ozil be out of favor? Such a great player, I dont get it.
post #3326 of 4307
fuck.

All Clichy's fault. He had the opportunity to get the ball away...91st minute, possession in his own third, he tries to dribble away instead of clearing and Welbeck takes the ball away, on to Rafael to earn the free kick that eventually won it.

Amazing match to watch. True regarding Clichy at the end. He really overthought it. The talk is all about why Tevez didn't start, and it's right to question Mancini starting Balotelli over him. I wonder if City will deal Balotelli during the winter transfer window.

As long as Mancini is in charge (and I'm not sure how much longer that will be with the apathy that seems to be awash over the squad, and the boardroom-our failure to secure any of our "real" transfer targets is why we are where we are now) Balotelli will remain. I don't question starting him today, he usually steps up in big games (vs Germany, Man u last season, and even setting up Aguero late against QPR).

The fact is we were linked with VP, and he is the solitary reason why Man U are where they are right now, 6 points ahead of us, and would have City with a striker who can score. In my mind you can never have too many strikers. We wanted Agger, and our centerback tandem that finished the last 70 minutes today were Kolo Toure (who wasn't even on our Euro roster and really would have been in Turkey had Richards not gotten injured) and Nastasic (a trade from the useless Savic who really impressed unexpectedly). We wanted DeRossi, who with Yaya going to Africa in January may still come our way, but we have a midfield with no competition for spots. Sinclair, Rodwell, Garcia and Milner (some through injury and some through lack of performance) leave Silva and Nasri without any real pressure on them for their spot.

Regardless of how it may seem, we have never payed like a team this year, and thats a result of the quick assembly of the squad last summer. In order to stay competitive, we needed to add these further big names, and will continue to have to do so to win, because the team assembled now just isn't gelling. Passing has been abhorrent all season.

The passes weren't bad between Tevez-Aguero-Silva today. Silva played well. A big thing was Yaya not having room to run free today. He just never had, and didn't actively seek, the opportunity to barrel down the middle of the field. I didn't notice Kompany getting injured, but did he? I don't remember any incident to bring Toure in for him so early, but there had to have been something. It's interesting to think of how long the owners will stick with Mancini. He brought the club their first title in forever, but it isn't as though the owners have been there long enough to care about the journey.

A nice strike by Glen Johnson. I'm happy to see it won't end in a goalless draw without Suarez available. When's West Ham moving to the Olympic Stadium?

Ozil is an amazing player but sometimes he just disappears from games.
