Posted this on the Cardiff match thread, but every time people starting posting that "we will thrash them" we inevitably lose. Blame the posters for our poor form against the lower half teams
Seriously though, our season is pretty much over, so if I were Pellegrini I would send out a message and drop some of those who started against Cardiff and bring in some who were on the bench or not in the squad.
Lack of quality is forgivable, lack of effort or desire is not. The problem is attitude imo.
Maybe it is the perfect game to try something different at home i.e. having Anderson, Lanzini, Antonio behind Arnie with Nasri (or Lanzini) playing deeper alongside Rice in midfield. Just go for it.
