Manchester City

Damning stat that underlines Manchester City’s European naivety is revealed

Our Manchester City fans here in the Transfer Tavern simply cannot believe what happened to them last night in the Champions League.

Going into the game against Monaco they were 5-3 up after an entertaining game at the Etihad and, whilst few expected it to be 0-0 for the 2nd leg, City keeping things tight had to be high on the agenda.

Instead, though, Pep Guardiola went out all guns blazing – highlighting the fact he doesn’t trust his defence – and it duly came back to haunt him.

Monaco beat the Citizens 3-1 to dump them out of the competition and for many it just highlighted how far City, for all their talent, still need to come to be a serious force in Europe.

Nothing suggests that more, though, than the following stat from OptaJoe on Twitter:

That is some record, then, and not one the Citizens will have surely wanted next to their name.

Thoughts, City fans? Let us know below!
