Manchester City lost to Monaco 3-1 tonight which brought the aggregate score to 6-6 and sent City packing with the away goals rule.
An unbelievably dire first half, missing chances and defensive personnel were all talking points amongst the City Twittersphere.
Here’s what you had to say:
Is the away goals rule outdated in the modern game?
Whether it comes into play here or not the away goal rule sucks. No goal should be of greater value than another.

That first half…
Threw it away with an atrocious first half. Still should have scored another #mcfc

Pig of a match. Very poor effort first half. Then same shit again… Score and then throw it away. Well done Monaco. #mcfc

Defensive recruitment HAS to be priority in the summer.

Still missing chances when it matters.

End on a fairly positive note. Season’s not over yet! Come on City!
We'll get the drama queens out now, all sulking, overreacting. Better future than anyone else. Bring it on 👍 #MCFC
