Subject: RE: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind)
"Slow possession cross-field football is not what fans pay for and want to see. Big money isn't a good excuse for not taking risks and entertaining the fans. City are guilty of time-wasting negativity. Pep honed that method at Barca with his tiki-taka stuff. But then he had Messi, Xavi and Iniesta, who could make it look good. There's simply no-one at City to compare with those "
I've been thinking about this. Last season City scored 95 goals to Liverpools 89. This season City have netted the ball 14 times in just 4 matches to Liverpools 12.
