    Bong's lacklustre attempted block was just the final piece in a poorly defended team goal but hey ho we are safe, only 2-1 down .. away to the champions ..so not all bad then!
    Important bit of context added here, but still, Bong's defending for both goals was appalling regardless of who we were playing.

      Taking into account the other thread about Yaya Toure how has he done in this game.

      Great post, well done! Very constructive!
      Up there with 'Bong the liability' I would think.

      There are probably quite a few fullbacks who have been a liability at the Etihad this season. To suggest Bong is not good enough after the season he has had is just stupid imo. Not to say we can’t improve on him but he is a big part of our defence which has done quite well overall.

      I'll probably be slated for having an opinion, but bong turning his back when that shot came in was just dumb. Poor defending at any level.

      I think Bong has had a wonderful season considering the step up, but I do feel if we want to make the next step up in this league we need to address both full back positions. Bong was poor for both goals tonight - that’s no scapegoating - it was obvious. We haven’t disgraced ourselves though and it’s not an important game for us so nobody panic
      Great post. My criticism of Bong is driven by his poor defending for the 2 goals and not just to make him a scapegoat. It is however a position we do need to strengthen if we are to progress as a team.

      Not really it’s an opinion! You don’t agree but it’s very immature to just call someone an idiot! Still you use the moo emoji so obviously a sensible chap!

      Bong having a nightmare, at fault for both goals.

      They're not great. But you don't need to be particularly great to get into the top 6. The only decent teams are in the top 4.

      No one gets passed Bong. He's been solid and allowed Izqueirdo to play. He's not perfect by any stretch, and has his moments and mistakes, but to call him a liability is simply daft.
