Recommended Posts

Wesley may as well wear a City shirt. Christ, when he's bad, he's really really **** bad.

He just got it from Grealish, and he couldn't do anything. No individual ability at all. 

We have no movement up there with him no wonder he can't do much.

Wesley has a thankless task upfront but he has to do more, he’s contributed nothing so far.

Imagine a prime John Carew of Benteke up there now?

It's difficult being a targetman against better teams, but if you don't bully them and you don't win free kicks, and you mess up the few breaks you get into, then why keep playing him. 

I hope he gets better with time, but we desperately need to replace him with a rotation option. I'd get Davis on all day long.

0 - 0 is a great great result for us so far. I'm very happy with that overall.

However, our right hand side is awful. Sterling is murdering Gilbert, I don't think it's legal what he is doing??

We're 0-0 away at City, calm down.

Trez has been very poor in possession, but he's holding the defensive shape well which must be why DS picked him ahead of AEG.

I'd bring Davis on at around the 60 min mark.

Douglas Luiz has been superb.

A decent half, better than I expected. Really can't see us scoring though.

Wesley always looks poor in these matches when we don’t have much ball. 

He gets petulant and jogs around the pitch.

Sorry to say it but Trez haven't looked like he's settled to the life in English football at all.

Don't think he's a bad player. Just don't think he fits the league.

You are just making excuses.. He literally JUST got the ball from Grealish, he could challenge, beat his man, or pass on Grealish's run, OR pass on Trez coming opposite OR pass it backwards. He could do a ton of things. We had runs going, he just didn't use them, nor did he do anything useful as he messed up his pass in the end.

I’m happy so far. If we can up our efficiency on the counter I can see us getting a goal.

I'll be looking for early changes from Smith, a few will be knackered at 60, Trez should be the first.

Bit lucky Silva missed when he should have scored, but we are at least giving them something to think about when we break. Defensively good and one or two decent forward moves, which have died with poor final ball. City still the most likely but you never know.

I like like him, but I agree, a big man like Wes shouldn't be passing backwards and sideways so much.
