    Basically yes, get a goal, defend well, score on the break if we can, the clean sheet is everything.

    Defence wins championships.

    But what you’re suggesting here is that our strikers have little margin for error because they pretty much have to convert an abnormal amount of chances and our defenders cannot make mistakes. If that’s what it takes to make the system work, we’re screwed because the law of averages will continue to bite us. Players aren’t robots and they will make mistakes and miss chances. If this is Jose’s plan, he’s not being fair to the players.

    Forces the opposition into an off day.

    We still did good things last night after taking the lead, we created chances from which goals should be scored 99% of the time, sadly Son had a bad day.

    There is still margin for error, but we need to move them from making loads of fudging errors all the time, to one or two between them in a game. I don't think thats unfair.

    Sad day for me with my Spurs.
    Apathy has taken over.

    Not in this day and age.

    Look at the attacks of the teams outside the top 4 in this league compared to the absolute dross in the league when Mourinho won his first two leagues with Chelsea - night and day, too much talent on and off the pitch across the league these days to let opponents have the ball and have them not hurt you.

    Quite scary that the favourites to win the league this season have the best defence in City. Although everyone sees their attacking threat they have kept so many clean sheets

    If your opponents don't have the ball they can't hurt you >>>> whoever makes the least mistakes wins


    Outdated philosophy

    Brighton had plenty of ball yesterday
    City defended well
    What city did do was keep the ball at times like you say
    We can’t do that with certain players.,, not their Jose favourites so they always play

    We have problems, it is not fair on Sissoko digging him for being picked, this is classic Mourinho.
    Sissoko does his best and is big-hearted and I love that.
    But he's not a right attacking forward bless him.

    What makes the result even better is if the Goons win tonight they are only 4 points behind us.

    He is perfect to play CM vs top sides if were not going toe to toe
    He is great as a sub where we’re head like he did vs Leeds
    He is not capable of playing in a team that has the ball I’m afraid. He lacks passing range and vision so everything is too simple and slow

    We're never going to have the ball for the whole match. Sissoko performs to his brief and is a viable CM choice whoever the opponent is, as long as the rest of midfield is balanced accordingly. It just goes to brick when he's deployed as a RW attacker - again, it doesn't really matter against whom.

    Someone pointed out that 8 of our 2nd half goals came in two games...

    Edit : Fake news, 6 in the Saints & United games

    I’m sure they said yesterday Fulham hadn’t scored a see one half goal in a long while too
    That was always gonna happen once they said that
