Recently, Pep Guardiola said that he would learn a lot once Manchester City suffered their first defeat of the season. Yesterday, City succumbed to a 2-0 loss at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane, so we asked the question – what did Pep Guardiola learn?
Fernando and Navas – pants? Jacob certainly thinks so and he believes Sagna and Clichy should be first choice fullbacks:
@City_Watch Fernando and Navas are pants. Sagna and Clichy are first choice fullbacks.

Dave wasn’t too impressed with Navas either and he also thinks the first choice fullbacks shouldn’t be Zabaleta and Kolarov:
@City_Watch that Kolarov Zaba and Navas shouldn't be anywhere near the first team…??
— Dave Stark (@davetheblue41) October 2, 2016
@City_Watch he has learnt that our full backs, navas and Fernando should be nowhere near our team

And another… we could go on forever, really:
@City_Watch He learnt that Kolarov is shit, Zaba is too old, Fernando and Navas are useless and Otamendi is overrated

Mike was straight to the point with no messing around going on – ruthless!
@City_Watch the full backs are shit

Too many games in too little time? Could the squad be a little jaded? The international break may have come at a good time:
@City_Watch that the players are already burnt out

Luke’s not convinced by the overall work rate of the team at White Hart Lane – he believes that January could see a lot of movement:
@City_Watch That there's a lot of players not putting the graft he demands in. A few have been found out. Big January ahead.

Paul believes the performance was so bad at the back that he didn’t even notice we had a defence – honestly Paul, we did!
@City_Watch we have no defence

Sané shouldn’t have been benched and we are reliant on Kevin De Bruyne, says Finn:
@City_Watch you have nothing to lose by starting Sane in the PL, and your outside backs cannot defend. Also we need De Bruyne.
— Finn (@FinnInNY) October 2, 2016
Maybe a bit extreme, Kris:
@City_Watch that we're still shit after last season

Lastly, thank you for your suggestion Philippa, but sometimes it is harder than it seems…
@City_Watch Ask him…
