City Twitter: Disappointing display, worst half of our season, did Pep make a mistake? – City Watch

City Watch

Manchester City drew 2-2 away at Middlesbrough today, a result that left a bitter aftertaste for both teams as it was not what either were hoping for.

Pep once again surprised most of us with an unusual formation that saw him play a clear two up front for one of the first times this season. Twitter was full of opinions on this new formation in a ‘crucial’ game.

Here’s what you had to say:

The first half formation.

So many questions after today. Tactics and team selection all over the place. Really poor. #MCFC

Pep should be first to admit it was his poor formation in the first half that cost us that game #mcfc

Well #Pep, you set up wrong once again. Thought you’d learnt that we can’t play 3 at the back. Good job you changed it at 60 mins #MCFC

Pep got that so wrong in the first but changed it in fairness, hard fought point lucky with the penalty but we were owed that! #MCFC

Get this season over with…

Bloody hell I can’t wait for this season to end. Pep simply has to deliver next season. No more excuses. Such a fire depressing season #MCFC

At this stage, as long as we finish 4th or higher I just don’t care. Next season please. #MCFC

Disappointing display, but should have won. Great header from Jesus. 1st half worst of our season. #MCFC

Interesting reading.

4 points dropped to Boro! really? #mcfc

Okay, lots of criticism, but that point makes it City’s best ever season in the premier league, away from home. #MCFC

Fresh faces in the summer.

Bring on the summer, City need some fresh faces at LB and RB #MCFC

Final ball and/or shot just woeful. Been saying we need full backs for 4 years. Perhaps we’ll get some this year. Have we progressed? #mcfc
