    Wolves keeping 10 men behind the ball, even though they are at home. Just defending, and looking for a break.

    Reyna free kick hits the wall.

    Reyna corner too deep.

    Commentators worrying about their free kick taking and commenting on the lack of precision exhibited by Reyna.

    It was more a general comment on the overall set-pieces, not Reyna in particular

    Yes, it was a general comment but it followed two poor Reyna kicks. they were lamenting the fact that Man City didn't really get much from their free kicks...the implication being that Reyna (as well as others) weren't making the grade.

    "I don't think I've seen as poor a first half at ANY level this season" says the commentator :)

    Now the commentator is complaining about his own hamstring pull. :) Apparently there's not much to talk about in this first half.

    Half time.

    "We can't tell you about any goal attempts because their simply haven't been any" (These guys are pretty entertaining on the audio feed).

    Reyna's Kicks

    For a player like Reyna's caliber, his set pieces really stinks. I saw him have the same problem in Sunderland and the national team. I do not know why they let him take it. It's either too short or long most of the time.

    Sadly it looks like this half might be just as exciting as the first.

    I love the ESPN gamecast...

    However I'd love to talk to their statistician.

    At the moment they have Man City with:
    3 shots
    2 of those shots on goal

    and 5 saves for the Wolverhampton keeper

    That's a bad result but Wolves was going to get a win at home somewhere.

    Wolves had to get off the schnide, which is why they played 10 men behind the ball.

    Still, Man City should be good enough to at least have gotten a point.

    Unfortunately, Claudio's been getting blasted in the reviews I've read so far. I haven't seen him rated above a 3/10 yet, and have read comments saying it's no wonder Sunderland went down, and that the only time Reyna appears is when it's time to waste yet another corner.

    Tons of complaints (levelled towards the entire team, not just Claudio) about lacking pace, lacking creativity, always passing square or backwards, not making runs into the box, etc.

    Oh, Claudio also was apparently fouled quite maliciously by Ince who dove in, studs up, with both feet in the 87th minute.

    Hopefully better days will come.

    You mean since he didnt play with them for 3/4 of the season? Anyone blaming Reyna for Sunderland going down obviously doesnt know crap about the league, or Reyna.

    Yeah, sometimes I agree with an earlier poster who said that some of Man City fans don't seem terribly bright, heh.

    A couple of them were also on Macca (before the injury) for not being a direct enough player, chiding him for not running at defenses, heh. If they actually think *Macca* is not attack minded enough...well...then I don't really know what to say, other than "you're wrong" and "he is". He's also been their *best* player so far, imho. (And it's unfortunate that Keegan seems to want him in the center of the pitch, where he might compete w/ Claudio for playing time.)
