    That makes it worse for me. You have criticised the team, manager and the way we play, said that City are basically unwatchable and given the opinion that we are and will in future carry on playing a certain (unattractive) way, based solely on absolutely nothing other than what you have heard second hand in a tv or radio interview after a meaningless friendly when half the first team weren't even available. If thats not being ‘over analytical’ I don't know what is.

    It's been a frustration for me as well. I dont expect our centre backs to be as good on the ball as Beckenbauer, but after doing the good bit of winning the ball, so often it is kicked or headed aimlessly,when there was plenty of time to pick a pass.
    It doesn't look as if Pack will be a CB this season, but I hope MM can coach just a tiny bit of football into our defenders.

    I think you partially have a good point but can you tell me why it matters if the game was watched or whether comment has been made based on post-match interviews if you think friendlies themselves are meaningless?

    Friendlies can suggest to us some things, the Pack at CB experiment seems to have been dropped, and they can be the first hint of how we might play going forward but they will be largely forgotten about come first games of the new season and forgotten completely 11 games in.

    Can I ask you why you think it was that Mick McCarthy kept on emphasising that we won despite him stating that we probably played better against Cambridge than we did last night and why did the interviewer bring up our lack of possession in one of his questions? Do you not trust their judgement on those matters? I do and they sound like they are talking about another case, albeit a not too important one, of us “winning ugly” with limited possession - something that we have tended to specialise in for getting on for a decade. Do you see anything in our transfer business so far this summer to suggest we’re going to see a more entertaining style of play from the team in 21/22?

    Its difficult to be mega optimistic this season. The teams coming down are pretty the only ones with cash to spend. The rest of us are relying on free transfers and cast offs. Hopefully we have enough to see us mid table.
    Whether MM is able to get us playing decent football is a moot point as we have the core of the team from last season.
