Our Manchester City fans here in the Transfer Tavern think that the club must target the FA Cup now to get the Pep Guardiola era off to a flyer.
The Citizens have had an okay season so far but they surely would have liked to have been part of the title race picture at this point.
Instead, though, they are looking to just finish in the top four as well as aiming for some silverware with a semi-final against Arsenal to come.
Some connected with the club blame the club’s defence for being so off the pace in the league, too, with Claudio Bravo and Willy Caballero getting a fair bit of stick.
Indeed, many have called for Joe Hart to return, too, but looking at this stat from Squawka you can suggest that that may not be the best idea after all:
Joe Hart has committed 6 defensive errors this season, Josip Posavec (Palermo GK) is the only player in Europe’s top 5 leagues to make more. pic.twitter.com/gFy9PJE8d7
