      I wasn't arguing the player, I was debating the formation.

      Personally I would have gone 4-3-3 with March and Brown as wingers alongside our best target man - Murray. We were playing Man City and we've lost 2-0. Why not be braver? Press higher against a back three and try to get our wingers in behind their wing backs, forcing them to have the ball a lot deeper and inside their own half. If they play around us and score a goal, it would have been because it was an immense move and one worthy of title favourites.

      I had limited expectations for today, obviously given the opposition, but to me I'm going home thinking we've expected to lose and have just rolled over, rather than using our largest ever crowd at the Amex in our first ever Premier League game and have a real go to make a statement.
      We may well have got ripped to pieces with that. CH probably got it right, as our available squad (just for today hopefully) lacks top flight pace/goals up front.

      Gerrard saying we were toothless upfront and will go down, but does like CH.
      That's all well and good Gerrard, but you're still a sh!t pundit!

      Personally i think losing 2 nil to this team is a reault. They will thump a few 6 nil this season! The real season starts next week!
      You're the c**t then! Season started today mate! We did ourselves proud but you carry on pretending weekends against the big 6 are dead rubbers!

      Man City are going to beat better teams than us by bigger margins this season, we'll get better by the week. No worries.

      Didn't know that. My comment was not meant seriously, but it's good if the Yanks have come round to the rest of the world's way of thinking.
      Certainly out of fans' demands and not out of realizing how it effected the broadcasts. I noticed today NBC had adverts popping up in great numbers all over the telly screen while the match proceeded.

      If only Trump would learn to behave like the rest of the world and not like the North Korean leader.

      Difficult one, can see the arguement both sides. Sooner that striker comes in, the better

      CH now being interviewed on NBC. Agreed we could have held the ball better. Happy with holding them for 70 mins. Says more positives than negatives. Also confirmed looking at more players coming in.

      Tactical masterclass today. We were never going to play them off the park. Keep it nil nil and score from set play which we very nearly did. They created two chances second half and both errors by us so can't blame manager.

      Their bench cost more than our training centre, stadium and squad.
