According to this report (admittedly from The Mirror) Freddie is talking to the players about the toxic atmosphere at the stadium and how to deal with it before the City game. How about this - play and give 100% and never give up. Earn your wages and the fans might be a bit more forgiving. But as I have said elsewhere the club culture is not what it should be and I am starting to think Freddie is just continuing giving players excuses for failure.

Plus the article states managers are not interested in coming to us because of the lack of money in the transfer kitty.

https://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football ... t-21100527


I hope Ljungberg will become a success with us as a manager. If not, I think Leonardo Jardim could be a good fit with us - winning Ligue 1 against Emery's PSG was a fantastic achievement.

I've never imagined City being anything other than leading the PL and the odd time every so often they are runner up. They have arguably the best manager in the world, limitless funds and a collection of a world XI. They may end up 3rd this season and that's a shock after last season. Yes, its hard to maintain that drive each season and each game but never foresaw this.

And never thought Liverpool would be this good as well. Imagine if they had kept Suarez?!

I don't expect City to stay this way for long. But till that time, its interesting see them struggling and 3rd

Another bar VAR decision imo.

Everton corner two players attack keeper imo at least one fouls him ball falls to Lindelof and goes in for a goal.

Craig Pawson gives a goal.

Much as I want Everton to win it's a disgrace.

Not the point though as they should all be good ones otherwise scrap it or scrap the incompetent refs.

And I was one of the first supporters calling for it from the start.....

Will Lacazette be happy?

Possibly another of my controversial points but shouldn't Aubameyang commit himself to the team or *%^@ off? Lacazette should be getting regular starts if he is thinking of going or we'll lose him as well.

Never mind whether players like it or not, we should be selecting the most effective XI. Personally I don't think playing both Aubameyang and Lacazette really works, and of the two Aubameyang is the best bet through the middle.

Sure did.

And that after a game where we conceded deflected goals due to players turning their backs.

If we keep them under 5 goals, I'll consider it a massive achievement.

We press from their box and they pass through us so easily.

See City’s tactical fouling to stop any counter attack. 7 fouls already, we’ve only conceded 1 foul. We pressed high but 1 pass took out most of our team. The press has to be effective and if you can’t then you have to foul

Don't expect that to change as long as Mertesacker is part of the coaching setup. He made turning his back an art form.

Some of our players go down so easily. It’s not even smart to make sure they win the free kick. Guendouzi, torriera and Pépé go down way too easily

When you’re down you keep getting dumped on. Tierney our for 3 months now a really bad tackle on kolasinac means he’s going to have to come off and it looks like Saka is going to come on and play left-back up against Sterling.

Rightly pointed out, why take so long to put in the substitute? We are slow to attack, and just as slow to substitute. Just no urgency in us.

A ray of hope is that even Silent Stan can't ignore this any longer. Right now it's to hellwithwell meaning waffle about Arsenal DNA. Just get a manager who can organise a defence.

Wake up, check score. Ahem. Expecting 7-0 by the morning. Arsenal back into a relegation battle. More importantly, off back to sleep.
