Tactics

It's official Pep is stubborn, no change of style. Tent pitching is a new tactic deployed against Mancity. "Let them have the ball, but just siege and out muscle their front man or men". Last year 27 goals by now, we're 17 goals short. This strategy is adopted by all teams against us. We need Dzeko or other big strikers!

Would be harsh to blame the keeper for the first goal when both cbs were sucked into following Kane leaving Ederson exposed.

There was no need for the keeper to rush out the way he did, he made it easy for Son

Watch both goals again, he made it easy for both finishes by rushing out

saw michael owen make the same point and yes, its true that both goals become difficult shots if Ederson stays on his line but he simply is not that kind of goal keeper.

The keeper stands 2 meters in front of his line so that he can give himself a head start if he needs to rush out. Thats his goal keeping style. He has saved a few this season by rushing of his line. It just didnt work on saturday for the 2 shots he faced.

You cant expect him to move back to his line unless if he maintained his position 2 meters in front of his line which is also risky.

Peter Schmichael used to do the same thing, I don’t remember Gary Neville slagging him off

Even if he stayed 2 metres from his line (his starting position) it would have made it harder for both Son and Lo Celso to score.

Rushing out made both finishes easier for both players...it made me happy as I am not a City fan

I'm happy that Ederson is the current holder of the Golden Gloves award.

He must get most decisions right.

I am happy that you are happy to have him as your goalkeeper

I didn’t think he was at fault for the first goal, the key error came before him. I did think he made the wrong call on the second one though.

He rushed out too far at both goals, at the first goal the defender was coming across and the half hit shot from Son would have went straight to him if he held his starting position.

I generally like him as a goalkeeper but he can be rather rash at times hence why he has been chipped and nutmegged so many times

He wouldn’t have taken the shot had he not been rushing out though. Either way, I still think the bigger error came before Ederson for that one more so than the second one.

I take the point to an extent though.
