How depressing, how long before AVB gets sent packing? He simply isn't getting the best result from the talent he has

Guys, You all need to take a look at Dzeko's stats. He scores goals when he is subbed on rather when he starts

Mancini needs to stop sticking dzeko on the bench. He needs to start more often than a super sub

Watching this game, how AVB can still put Friedel first when he has Lloris on the bench?
Zolamagic (Chelsea) 4 years ago
Friedel is and has been one of the best goalkeepers in PL history. There is no reason to drop him.... He has been brilliant this season and deserves to be in the starting XI.

Unlucky for Lloris but he will get his chance
Miggz10 (Liverpool) 4 years ago
And who knows, maybe brad friedel does better than Llrois in training sessions.
Lloris is playing in the premier league now. And Just maybeeee the premier league is a lot harder to handle in goals than the french league. Know ones knows what goes on in training and what is on AVB mind

Dude, friedel is awesome. Recognize man

I don't think Lloris should be on the bench. Just think about it. Friedel is good, but he is a backup keeper for america. Lloris starts ahead of Mandanda for france! Maybe they're just waiting until he's settled in a little more, but Lloris>Friedel

First penalty shout against Gallas, I'd say yes, penalty. Second one for the body check, I'd disagree, I think Zabaleta had lost control of the ball anyway
TheKeeper (Chelsea) 4 years ago
If you'd call the penalty for Zabaletta then you would have had to call it for Adebayor too

Well this makes the fulham draw feel all better, time 2 get sum belief in those goons by smacking some spuds

The sub is the top scorer for city, but still remains sub. Maybe he's better off as sub than he starts? But for dzeko's status.... I think he will leave in january if he remains sub for games onwards. Headache for mancini again

Hahaha, you'd like that wouldn't ya, Dzeko knows his role, and knows he's not expendable to the squad. He fits better as a sub. And does get starts. How bout your boy hernandez?
Crayon (Liverpool) 4 years ago
No u're wrong Pkhakheria. Dzeko wants to be in the first team. Did you listen to his interview. He's questioning why isn't his goals speaking for him
Zolamagic (Chelsea) 4 years ago
I would choose Dzeko over Balotelli but he's never getting in the team ahead of Aguero or Tevez unless someone gets injured
Miggz10 (Liverpool) 4 years ago
Maybe Dzeko does better as a sub. More of a motivational type of thing (He plays harder if he comes on as a sub). Mancini knows what he is doing. Short term is good long term not so good. Maybe dzeko doesn't mind that role which is a win win
BlueMoon420 (Manchester City) 4 years ago
At this point I'd expect Balotelli to leave in January, not Dzeko. Dzeko got subbed on, but Mancini put Mario in the stands. Our rotation might be Aguero, Dzeko, Tevez, Guidetti by the end of the year

Facts:never ever take early lead against city, this game shows how fortunate westham for tht disallowed goal....
City only getting goal from strikers, nicer f midfield also take some part.... Intentional or not, refs always favour against city....
.... Call super sub or whatever you like, he is d man when it matters.

"refs always favour against city".... Weird how this is coming from a Barca fan
4ever (Barcelona) 4 years ago
How weird is this.... We are talking about city not barca.... So you guys are telling barca fan can't analyse matches.... I don't understand some people attitudes...

Man City undefeated and playing really sloppy defending. How great will they be if they clean that up
Topshotta (AC Milan) 4 years ago
The only Spurs that showed up in this game were Ade and Sandro. Dempsey and Bale were invisible.

City haven't put together one convincing full 90 minutes together yet and are still undefeated. It could get scary for the rest of the league if they can find an extra gear. The team hasn't been quite the same though since they let go of Adam Johnson and de Jong
MattJosh (Chelsea) 4 years ago
"any of you boys score this season? " lol, the way he said it was just so funny. Dzeko is really underrated and he should start ahead of Tevez. Balotelli has been very poor this season, maybe he's just not as good as we think he is, he's got a lot to prove
Otownballer (Arsenal) 4 years ago
Awkward moment, gave me a good chuckle. Alan Hansen should probably stay away from a career in diplomacy
Dilla (Manchester City) 4 years ago
Someone needs to show this breakdown to balotelli and say "see that bit on how aguero applies himself, if you did that you'd be the first name on the team sheet every week"
Hamoudi (Manchester United) 4 years ago
I think city are making huge strides here, there is so much spirit and belief in their squad. Mancini is doing a great job there, they are not playing well and still gaining the points.... United-like
AdnanBosnia (Manchester United) 4 years ago
Happy for Dzeko not for city lol. Funniest thing is Dzeko is making Mancinis job still existent but he is not even trying to start him games week in week out. WBA, Fulham, Spurs, Southampton and not to mention last year vs qpr in dieing minutes.

Aguerro and Dzeko link up works well I reckon there very different but it suits the play, yes tevez does run a lot but he is not on good form and doesn't deserve to play for what he did last year and Balotelli is still learning but shouldn't be ahead of Dzeko.

Maicon and Kolarov also add some good width play for City as clichy is horrible in Attack and zabaleta is too slow down the right hand flank
Lelouch (Manchester City) 4 years ago
He's tried, he started him against Ajax away, and Dortmund at home. Both were tough games for Edin. I agree with you that Dzeko and Aguero could work well together, as they did in a number of games last season.

If you watched the game, you wouldn't say Kolarov added some good stuff. Some of his passes yesterday went to no man's land and just gave away possession. And Clichy is horrible in attack? Maybe his crosses aren't accurate but his pace and ability to bring the ball past players sets the attack in motion for us. He did that a few times yesterday.

Zabaleta isn't slow, and his link up play with Silva has paid dividends many times before
TheCheshireCat (Manchester United) 4 years ago
Dzeko scores timely goals and has proven, just like Chicha, that he's the best when played off the bench
Kelvintemp (Barcelona) 4 years ago
HOw many times has Dzeko saved ManCity this season? He seems very reliable when needed
Zolamagic (Chelsea) 4 years ago
Lelouch    By that logic Rooney doesn't deserve to play
