You can see where we are weak; pace in defence is the problem CG not up to CL standard but we have 4 goalkeepers already have to clear three out then buy well. Perhaps Jerry St Juste can give pace in defence but he is young and will need time. We also need quality back up for Tierney and Luznig may be coming to the end of his time at fullback done nothing wrong tonight but is getting older and it must be hard to race up and down the wing on nights like this.

Some of those man city players have lightning pace and we were caught high but that's how we had to play to stay in it and press. Your not going to get cb that can defend and match a winger for pace unless you can pay for it. Fair enough they could of reacted quicker/ better but come on mate. Players did well tonight and if we had finished better we could of won.

Unfair on lustig I think. He might not be the quickest but he gives us a level of robustness IMVHO and is deserving of a new deal

Thought brown positional play this evening was great. Armstrong mobility was evident ; he is developing fast in to a potential petrov type

Great comment earlier about " the unit ", we certainly play as a team and with our financial limitations we need to work as a team, develop as a team, attack as a team, defend as a team and be all about team where the sum is greater than the individual parts

That type of team requires stamina and fitness and decent game intelligence. We will never ever ever have eleven technically gifted and fast players. We can't afford that but this team is certainly punching above its weight already and 2 to 3 additions will only help

Hail hail.

I actually rated Agathe as a defender because his pace and determination saved us on numerous occasions.

I know his end product for crossing and shooting was a bit erratic but when he was on form he was unstoppable because no one could catch him.
