So what did fans pay for tonight? 

 

Even at 1-0 down we’ve not even gone for it for 10 minutes 

 

Was our game plan to even keep in it to the final minute? Because we can’t even keep any composure to get the ball up front

 

Dreadfull

How can you say that, I felt proud tonight. They did good.

In the league where goal difference can make or break a season I can see why we’d play this way, but in the 5th round of the FA cup and even allowing for the quality we were playing surely we could have shown more ambition.

 

If we played that way in the league, we'd be relegated before Christmas. Playing like that only makes sense in the Cup, where you might somehow manage to take it to penalties.

Mate you’re just embarrassing yourself now. 
 

Wigan beat West Brom on the Weekend does that mean Wigan are now the best team in the league? 

 

 

Where did he imply  they were ?

 

 

The commentators were taking the p s out of us tonight at the end 

 

Ok we worked hard but dont I here players saying they give 100% every game ?

 

As a poster has said, lower league teams at least have a go but  we are delighted not to have been thrashed 

 

We really are steeped in a happy loser mentality

It's not the first time and I won't be the last time this sorry excuse of a team won't get a shot on target 

People will use the man City excuse 

Our midfield is useless, regardless of opponents 

I'd be amazed if any of our midfield duos in the last 3 years could hold their own in league 1 

It's pathetic

It wasn’t as bad as I was expecting but one shot on goal with none on target and 20% possession at home is pretty poor. I could have played in goal for City tonight.
 

There were large sections of the game when instead of pressing the ball we just sat in.

 

They should have put a few more away, didn’t feel like they ever got out of second gear.

 

Do we expect much more when lads like Pelupessy and da Cruz are playing 90 minutes against one of the best teams in world football?

Before the game folks are worried about double figures being put past us live on telly infront of a watching nation. 

 

We're a bang average Championship side in an absolutley dreadful run of form and making calamitous mistakes every week and we're  playing against one of the best side on the globe with £500m worth of talent on the pitch.

 

We keep it to 1-0 

 

Not good enough. 

 

Fckin hell.

Real dire stuff.  Would have preferred a 6-0 tonking if we ventured out past mid a bit more .

 

It's the Fiddle Cup against FC Moneybags.  Who cares?  Show some verve.

Easy to say. You’d be crying like a little ***** if we actually had got spanked 6-0.

Gone out without a shot on target 
 

WOW

Your a fool if you thought we were going to go for it we had came out of the game with a few plus points

I wish you could post something positive for a change or find something else to do matchday

I know it was City but let’s be honest this containment style of football has been a staple diet of Monk’s time here and in the championship since Christmas, we’ve even struggled to do that.

 

The OP is making a fair point with regards to getting value for money with the ticketing prices and with the lack of home goals for us this season we’re obviously not but opinions on here of late are as erratic as Peter Snow’s election night swingometer.

When Oxford played City in the League Cup, City included Sterling, Aguero, Bernardo, Foden, Mahrez, Cancelo and Zinchenko in the starting line up. Gundogan replaced Rodri and Jesus replaced Angelino just after the hour mark. 

 

Oxford had 18 shots on goal in the 90 minutes. 

 

I'd presume that with the quality they were facing they were also tired. 

 

So what's our excuse? 

 

Man City went one up after 20 minutes, therefore Oxford had to open up when they were less tired.

 

Oxford also score for fun at home in 'normal' games whereas we struggle to create chances against Hull, Cardiff, Reading, etc. We're not going to treat Man City apart.

Newport Man City last year - managed more shots and at least a goal, against a strong side.

 

We didn’t concede 4 - but they STILL managed a goal in last ten. 
 

Zero excuses for tonight - feel sorry for all those that paid money to watch us defend for 90 minutes. It’s a game we were never gonna win, just have a bloody go for 5 minutes

Newport played Man City "on their own terms" on a pitch that disrupted City's normal style and played into the hands of a bustling lower League side. The pitch was a leveller.

The pitch didn't level the game last night so we were shown up to be the team we are, against the team Man City are.

a hardworking performance against a superior team. 
 

what were you expecting?

it's good to see threads like this on here, it just goes to show how many people entering a football ground actually know anything much about football.

Did you even read my post? 
 

Not a problem with keeping it right - but at 1-0 down with ten minutes to go? 
 

We still don’t even pull away and push some men up? 
 

Why? We had no composure, no outball, no threat at all from inplay or dead ball situations - what made us think we could have one chance? 
 

 

Pathetic 

let me help you out here.

our team was built for promotion 4/5 years ago, with players in their pomp THEN, they are now over the hill.

we are losing league games in the last 10 minutes as often as not, due to the fact we can't go for 90 + on a regular basis, as in 2 games per week, or 3 in 8 days.

our poor squad allows us little choice replacement wise, especially in attacking options.

when you set off for the game tonight what final score were you expecting?

how many new ar$eholes did you expect us to rip them?

this 'poor and spent' squad of ours has bigger fish to fry, there may well be far more important games to come than a cup game in a cup we couldn't hope to win.

'skills levelling pitch' and 'gut busting 100% total physical effort'.

neither in our favour last night.

In their last 2 games against City, including the FA Cup Final which was the game of their lives, Watford (an established PL side who finished 11th last season) managed a combined total of 16 goal attempts.
 
Lost 6-0 and 8-0.

Aye they lost six nil and eight nil.

 

But their fans will have gone home delighted coz their team had a go or sumat.

Hard to expect a team bereft of confidence, bereft of its best players and playing a side on a strong run go for the jugular
