But if we are honest City handed them a point on a plate today. They could and should have been 3 or 4 up at half time. Second half City did what City do far too often imo. They dropped into second gear and paid the price.
I do wish we had Son and LoCelso though.
you say that.and youre correct that Man City should have been out of sight by half time.....but thats how the bubble aussie bloke plays....its risky and brave as fuck IMO...makes me feel sick saying it ...but i enjoy that kind of football. they didnt cower to Man City.
i fear im finally going to be sectioned again after the scouse cup game ...after MOYSIE sets up the same way as his previous 70 odd ZERO away wins at the so called 'top six'
As a neutral I agree. Great to watch. But if I was a Spurs fan, and I'd say the same about Brighton, I'd hate the headless chicken approach tbh. I totally agree Moyes is over defemsive and the football we play can be bloody turgid, but the ideal formula is somewhere in the middle. Good defending is , at least for me, just as enjoyable to watch as good attacking play.. But GOOD defending doesn't mean just wellying the ball upfield aimmlessly. One of the best players of all time imo, Paolo Maldini, once said "If I have to make a tackle I've already made a mistake" and there's a lot of truth in that statement.
Boelsa is another one who adopts an all out attack, gung ho, game. And I had a chuckle when he was still at Leeds and I heard a Leeds fan on a radio phone in slagging him off and saying he's love to see David Moyes in charge. I know who the neutrals would prefer to watch but if you want trophies Mourinho trumps the fat Aussie or deZerbi every time imo. You will notice I said Mourinho and not Moyes I hope.
