I won't make any explanations or excuses for the following it was posted in our forum, by a city die hard fan, who simply cares about his club.
You have let us down as well over these games, but I want to say the following :
You have earned the right's to play in this League and nobody can take that away.
Now go on for the rest of the season believing in these rights .. and earn your own personal rights to play in the team, Give the manager no excuse to drop you or sit you on the bench or in the stands.
Do your own thing on the field and fluck this defensive mindset. Now as a group go and earn the right to play against whoever. You have that right as you have earned it.
As a team you are good enough, don't worry about the opposition.
