In football you make your own luck. Everyone that’s played any level knows this.Yep. They are different. But there could have been a couple more of them and nobody would have argued they were unfair. We really didn't deserve to win those games I mentioned. But we did. That's luck.
Don't wanna be saying that so much next season. Want us to create enough chances that any games we do draw we could say we were unlucky based on weight of chances. Only way we'll do that is becoming more creative in open play and scoring goals from the midfield
Is Man city simply just lucky that most teams go to the emptihad with a lazy template on how to handle the game and invest more thought on the game after than the city game? , that’s Pepe’s luck, but he made it.
Flick to origis goal vs Everton, the moment was luck, no one could tactically plan for that to happen, but the ‘luck’ doesn’t happen unless a series of factors requiring hard work, dedication, belief and tactical adherence preceded it.
It’s not like Jurgen was happily playing poker with the bench when in unexpected moment occurred. It’s not like origi just chanced upon challenging Pickford becuase there was nothing else to do.
You create your own luck in this game. About the only internal thing you cannot control is injuries, but even then, you can mitigate a lot of what used to be seen as ‘bad luck’ by modern training techniques.
So in reality you are correct, there’s an element of luck in a lot of results throughout a season.
