Whilst I still doubt Arteta, Citeh are the form team in the lge, 4 against the mousers and easy win at toffees last week!
Make no mistake! An emery or wenger team would have lost 4,5,6 take your pick!
We had an awful first half hour, simply because they are better than us and Holding day dreaming didnt help!
We kept our shape didnt give up so some positives!
The smallest player on the City team scoring with a header in the 6 yard box and our team having only one shot on target the whole 90 mins, are not very positive

Just seen an interesting stat, hard to believe for a defensive midfielder....

Xaha Did not make a tackle until the 53rd minute and then was cautioned
I couldn't understand why he was penalised for a high challenge, gundegon foot was as high, and he kicked xhaka's leg, meaning Xhaka was first to the ball. Yet, ref yellow cards Xhaka and awards city a free kick.
That's one that always bugs me. Both feet high and going for the ball. It's purely accidental. Yes it's a sore one but not even a free kick let alone a booking.

As melonhead Andy Gray would say, not every coming together is a foul.

Compare that to John Stones shepherding the ball out for a goal kick. The ball isn't within 6 feet of him and he's more intent on blocking the man. That's an old fashioned indirect free kick for obstruction to me.

Perfectly acceptable when Sol Campbell used to do it though obviously. :lol:
Ironically would have done us a favour if he had sent Xaha off...hes absolute SHIT

The players walked onto the pitch Afraid and they played like they were afraid. That goes for the manager as well. SHAMEFUL.

A perfectly fair shoulder to shoulder challenge in my book, and sadly missing from today's game :( Look at the difference in our players and what stones showed yesterday - our players (especially xhaka but not only xhaka), wait for the slightest contact and go to ground grabbing the ball for a free kick, whilst stones was gonna fight and show who was boss in that moment and got his reward, and let's not forget that stones is not known for his defensive strength. Referee's in england are beginning to get wise to xhaka's attempt to con them that way now, and we are gonna to see an increasing number of occasions where the ref either waves play on or gives a free kick for handball against xhaka, and it is no less than he deserves.
Come on Augie, a shoulder to shoulder I will always agree but not a shoulder to the chest when the ball is not within a playable distance. That's a foul all day long mate.
100% it was shoulder to chest. I'm old school like the augster and I hate how soft the modern game has become but a foul is still a foul and shoulder to chest is a foul.
