For 2, that's how we have played all ******* season, not just for that game. Utterly boring and predictable. Should have been thrashed, and deserved to be.
For RH to say we gave them a game simply defies belief. They could have won 9-1 without getting out of 2nd gear.
Anymore of this crap and the club can stick the half price ST for slinging me out of my seat.
9-1?

They only had 6 shots on target

We didn't press their defence at all. That was deliberate and tactical. I also get why Roy did that. City like to encourage the press because they think they are good enough to beat it and usually the front 3 or 4 press and leave gaps in the midfield to exploit.

What was disappointing, was dropping the middle 5 to almost the edge of the box and not pressing their midfield at all. They had the licence to go side to side without too much pressure from us. Our midfield was so deep (deliberately) that it meant Benteke was totally isolated when the ball got to him and the ball just came back. Moving our creative players 10m close to him wouldn't have hurt the shape that much would it?

They also clearly targeted PVA as the weak link who switches off and rarely looks for his man on the blind-side, they tried that inside long diagonal about 5 or 6 times and it worked 3 or 4 times.

With the deferential way we played we were always going to give a few goals away. Our left sided defence has been a free zone for attackers all season as PVA has been poor, geting caught out often and without the midfield cover Andros gives on the right.

You forgot......if they had scored from the sitter Sterling missed. They only looked uncomfortable for the small period when we actually attacked in the last ten or so minutes.

We are Crystal Palace playing Manchester City - we're only ever going to get a small period of ten minutes or so making them uncomfortable....and when we did, we got caught on the break and conceded.

I wasn't there ... listened to the BBC Radio London commentary. I've just read this report by the excellent Jamesey of holmesdale.net. It doesn't make happy reading ...

Swap "excellent" for very negative.

Apparently we will get relegated next season because we lost to Man City and Tottenham (two of the best 8 teams in Europe)... sigh

City should have rested their best players Sunday for the Spudz game tonight and put in a toothless like performance like against Weed in the SF, they paid for it, tough shit.
