WHO Poll
Q: 2021/22 What competition should we prioritise this season?
a. The league is our bread & butter, so this year let's have a club sandwich
b. We're owed an FA Cup after Gerrard nicked our last one in 06, our name's on it in 22
c. A bye to the League Cup 3rd round gives us a good start, let's make it count
d. The Europa is our best ticket to the Champions League, this is the one
e. What's wrong with you, let's do the lot, has the quadruple ever been done

Team for City
Back to business in the PL. Not many would give us a chance in this one but if we can put in a performance like we did up there last season, you never know.

Antonio rested, Rice rested - hopefully that will make a difference, especially in the case of Antonio, who really looked like he needed it. But nobody has done anything to lose their place, despite a sub-standard team performance at Wolves.

Johnson Dawson Zouma Cresswell
Rice Soucek
Bowen Fornals Benrahma

Re: Team for City
City are not going to launch high balls into our penalty area, so Diop should be the better option to Dawson.

Re: Team for City
Surely has to be Diop rather than Dawson also so Zouma plays on his preferred right side in the central pair

Re: Team for City
As per the OP, with perhaps Coufal in lieu of Johnson (assuming he's available).

Don't know why but am quietly confident.

Re: Team for City
Dawson struggles with tricky people running at him with pace more than Diop. But is great at marking and in the air.

Diop is a lot more nimble with people running at him but gets caught under the ball and ball watches so often.

Ogbonna is usually good at both which is why they don't get in the team when he's fit.

I'd go for Diop in this match as we're going to need to worry most about short exchanges of passes rather than a load of crosses.

Jasnik 10:35 Fri Nov 26, or simply scoring one for City...

Re: Team for City
Yes Dawson and Diop both have mistakes in them. Maybe Diop's mistakes haven't been recent and fresh in the memory cause he simply hasn't played.

But my thinking is Zouma is less likely to make a mistake playing on the right and playing Diop allows that.

But I'd be amazed if Moyes doesn't pick Dawson

Manuel 3:00 Sat Nov 27
Re: Team for City
Jasnik - Diop also has a mistake in him, that's for sure, even Zouma does.

I would still trust Dawson over Diop, but ideally someone else comes in in Jan.

Another vote for Ludo 21's team.

Re: Team for City
Weren't Man City fans comparing him (Coufal) to Zabaleta after last seasons game up there?

Jasnik 10:35 Fri Nov 26
Re: Team for City
Diop ahead of Dawson for me, but Moyes will play Dawson but I just think he is one ricket away from us conceding a goal.

Re: Team for City
It has to be said that the theory on here that Soucek was tired and needed a rest seemed to have been disproven by Moyes resting Rice instead against Rapid. If Moyes though Soucek was tired, Vienna would have been a perfect time to keep him at home.

We’ve missed Coufal’s crosses, but we need a really defensively solid rightback against one of the best sides in the world. Coufal was defensively dodgy earlier this season. If he seems to have got over that, I’d start him ahead of Johnson, but it’s a tough one.

Alternatively, we could do one of our rare reversions to 5-4-1 and try to soak up pressure and hit them on the break.

————Diop Zouma Cressers————

As I said in another thread. Cressers provides the crosses from the left and Johnson concentrates on defence, getting up and down the touch line, and cutting inside and shooting.

We showed in the cup that we can match them. I’d love to see us go one better and shock everyone.

Re: Team for City
Having thought about and i would surely love Johnson to hold down a place but Coufal should start imho. He is that slightly bit smarter against these top 3 teams. Our attacks will be few a nd far inbetween.
Lanzini too will do better with the abll. Benrhama was dreadful tonight. I know it was a foregone conclusion by the time he came but he gave the ball way to much.

Coufal Zouma Diop Cresswell
Rice Soucek
Bowen Lanzini Fornals

Re: Team for City
3 games in a week and for me if I was to write one off it would be this one, the other two are more winnable imo.
So i'd stick with Johnson, put Kral in, give Lanzini a start plus Vlasic. Having said that we dumped them out of the cup, so what the fuck do I know...

Hammer and Pickle 11:50 Fri Nov 26
Re: Team for City
ludo21's team please.

Lato 11:47 Fri Nov 26
Re: Team for City
I would go Diop for Dawson and Coufal back in for Johnson. Not that young Ben has done anything wrong, imo Coufal offers more going forward not goals I know but, in assists. Thats presuming we are going to attack at some point and not park the bus!

Re: Team for City

Like that team.

Need to cut off the space in between the lines.
So much of their threat comes in those spaces or in between CB and fullback.

Re: Team for City
COYI - for once I don't strongly disagree with you. I thought Benrahma looked incredibly casual in Vienna and I think he needs a kick up the backside. But I doubt Moyes will drop him.

I'm liking the idea of Diop to the left of Zouma but likewise, I doubt Moyes will do it.

Re: Team for City
Same as slartibartfast 11:12 Thu Nov 25 for me, keep Johnson on the right and Diop in for Dawson. Zouma right CB and Diop left CB.
A result in this one would be happy times.

Manuel 5:32 Fri Nov 26
Re: Team for City
So you are not calling an ''easy'' 1-3 win this week then, you silly cunt??

Dawson will start, if you don't know how Moyes works by now where the fuck have you been??

Suspect it will be the same team as it is every week judging by who started last night.
