I have to say I'm smiling a little at our defeat tonight. Having spent 5 years in my teens in Bristol, and been down to Ashton Gate on numerous occasions, the Robins are my second team. I can't say they were the better side but I can say that there were a few players whose performances were nowhere near what one would expect from a player in a top Premier League team. Both Martial and Rashford seemed to have no first touch at all, their dribbling was slow and ponderous. Promising situations evaporated one after the other at their feet. Good passing opportunities were missed. I'm sure the Beast will have something to say about it!

Shaw,

Great performance from them, seem a good honest side and no reason why they can’t get promoted, good luck to them.

Had a sneaky feeling we’d lose tonight. Zlatan (goal aside), Darmian, Rojo, Lindelof and Martial were awful.

Zlatan in particular looked very much like a 36 year old who’s been out for 8 months tonight.

At least we will get a reaction in the league now.

Forgot to add Blind too. He was so bad I forgot he was playing!

20 Dec 2017 22:52:34
I'd add Rashford to that aswell. Infact the only praise idgive to anyone off our team would be Mctominay.

20 Dec 2017 22:57:12
To be fair how bad would it be to sell Darmian and Blind and bring back Fosu-Mensah and use Tuanzebe more.

Dark Knight didn't mctominay lose his player and that led to their winning goal, he looks a bigger Cleverly to me does the 5 yard passes but nothing beyond that.

All I have to say is that no part of me enjoyed that performance, nor getting beat by a team we should be hammering.

After 10 minutes I felt we were in trouble with Pogba showboating in dangerous areas. Same performance I see every week, this time we got beat, normally we win or draw playing like that. I wonder how we will play on the weekend, spoiler alert "EXACTLY THE SAME".

Have to disagree on Martial. I though Rashford showed his immaturity by being super selfish where he could have squared a simple pass for Lukaku to score. I think the midfield was quite poor and the distance between our kids and defenders and attack lends itself to long balls. all night no one available to take the ball in the middle of the pitch.

Mctominay was also poor if you watched his positioning through out the game and how far he was from where the ball was when our defenders where looking for a midfielder. Second goal was also his fault IMO.

It felt like one of those nights where the many of the players were trying to improve their own stats and not playing as a team. So many poor touches, poor passes and generally very poor decision making. I know people who don't like the manager will jump at him but the players were truly poor and that is on them.

Ibra looks miles off and a hinderance on the pitch. When you are 6 foot 7 and can't win a header that tells you something. Darmian looked like a division 3 player against their left winger and god helps us if he is going to fill in for Valencia.

No one in the side can come away with a lot of credit following a performance like that. Bristol City were great and deservedly won. It looked like we just expected to turn up and win comfortably without much effort.

A few players who played last night such as Darmain (worst fullback in the league), Rojo (we should be paying teams to take him) and Mkhitaryan will be lucky to be here past January. Shaw, Blind, Ibrahimovic and Romero will also probably before the start of next season and obviously signings will be made to replace some. However, bringing back Fosu-Mensah and Periera as well as promoting Tuanzebe would for me be the right way of replacing some of the above.

I think the criticism of Blind and Darmian is a little over the top. If you're not rotating the team regularly, you can hardly expect players to come in once every couple of months and pull out a top performance.
