Ok I understand better now. It's about things outside of the pitch as well.City's 98 points is a result of many factors outside of what happens on the pitch. Even just restricting it to what happens in the 90 minutes this assessment of 'control' is intangible.
We could have the opposition with the ball in our defensive third and be in considerable more control than City in possession on the halfway line. I rarely felt the game was getting away from us last year such was the control we exerted even in tight games.
I didn't get the same sense from City more often than us. If anything I felt they looked more vulnerable.
Just as an aside, I think our first XI is better than theirs.
Da ting is see... I'm talking about the things that happen inside the stadium. On match days. Inside the 90 minutes. I'm not trying to get the tea lady involved, or the physio.
You think we had the same control and all that, which is good, becauae what you show by saying this is that you just see the game differently to me. That's all.
Throwing barely plausible ideas, like "we could have as much control playing 90 minutes in our own half as they could playing 90 minutes in the opposition's" or whatever nonsense, does nothing to make me question my stance. Instead it looks like you want to keep your red tints on for this particular subject.
