That was fucking hard to watch. To be entirely honest though i am past giving a fuck on the football side of things. The first goal i was gutted , after that i was just numb , i don't know what to think anymore , i'm losing the heart for it.
The performance was awful , even if City were impressive , 442 was a good idea and fairly bold for a new managers first away game , but it just didn't work for us , Johnson looks like he is being contained , he very rarely got beyond Kuyt tonight which is the main point of him being a 17 million pound player.
Agger , well....... where to start , first things first you have to say Johnson was excellent tonight , can't believe City managed to get him for 5 million , the only consolation is the fact Whisky nose didn't sign him. I think he will be like what Giggs was for United , no matter how many players they bring in he will be the main stay in that City team for a number of years. Johnson just showed everyone why Agger isn't a full back , he is our best centre half and it should be him plus one ( Skrtel ).
Carragher , was just a normal Carragher performance , sit deep and fight for every ball without much real thought and ability , when we took centre and passed it back i remember Carra parking himself on the edge of our 18 yard box , it's like that's the default for us whenever we play , he needs to be phased out.
Skrtel , the lad was poor tonight , but i will give him the benefit of the doubt and say it was more the circumstances that he found himself in. You can't really do your best work when you are playing with someone that wants you to sit so deep , also the fact he had to play on the left side and had to bale Agger out on a few occasions.
Lucas , very poor from him tonight , over run by City's extra midfield player , and the fact their wingers were cutting inside the whole match.
Gerrard , thought he was ok , tried to find a Torres run that wasn't always there , showed some energy in a lethargic performance.
Jovanovic , worst player on the park in my opinion , was always caught as to whether to back track or attack Richards , in the end he did nothing , also gave the ball away on too many occasions and showed a poor awareness of what was around him.
Kuyt , did some good work but he has become a slave to his own reputation , used for the wrong reasons to often.
Ngog , He is goona be a good player , showed more maturity than alot of players with more expierience than himself , held the ball well and his distribution was quite useful , he just got crowded out to often.
Torres , wanted to do to much by himself but was still our biggest threat by quite a distance , pulled us up the field ten or 15 yards when we were under the cosh just down to pure ability.
In conclusion , shite. Oh and fuck off out of our clubs you Yank bastards.
