Just when you think that things can’t get any worse…

I struggle to write anything about our situation at the moment, always end up repeating myself. We all know what the problem is, everything else is only a symptom…

There’s absolutely no point in discussing the finer points of the performance, the players, the manager, the chief executive, the ‘board’; nothing changes until Ashley goes…

Having said that…

20 Minutes In… Winning 1-0…

I’m slightly puzzled by the suggestion that we had an outstanding first-half, we played well but that was it. A great goal by Mitrovic and a perfectly good goal disallowed but Manchester City had chances. There was always a feeling that they were misfiring and couldn’t play as badly after the break, they didn’t…

The first twenty minutes of the second half were shambolic, it wouldn’t be so bad if we’d conceded good goals; but at 1-2 our heads dropped and we gave up…

It would be unfair not to mention Agüero and Silva though, absolutely world class. I’m sure at some point in the future I’ll be able to say ‘I was there’, not for a very long time though…

Second Half… 6-1 Down…

Anyway… I stayed until the bitter end, not out of any great wish to applaud the team, more out of sheer bloody mindedness toward the Citeh supporters parked to our right.

But at least it didn’t rain…
