Manchester City fans want Pep Guardiola fired after their team was defeated 2-1 by Brentford on November 12. Ivan Toney nodded the Bees ahead after a pinball scenario in the box in the 16th minute, giving the Cityzens the lead.
City provided the thrilling late drama against Fulham, but with 11 men, they couldn’t break down a resolute Brentford for the second time and had to watch as the Bees did to Fulham last week.
Fans Reaction to City’s loss against Brentford
Guardiola is being chastised for the setback at the hands of Brentford. Guardiola, a prolific striker, was reportedly benched, according to one supporter. Following the humiliating defeat, several City fans even demanded that the Spaniard should be fired.
One fan said, “Guardiola can say a sweet good bye. This is all the rubbish that he culminates and emanates. No wingers who hold width, no full backs who hold width. No midfielders apart from De Bruyne and Silva that can pick out a pass. Horrible. Horrible. Horrible”.
Another tweeted, “I love seeing tin pot Man City lose. It’s become my daily medicine, my weekly energy, my monthly inspiration and my yearly motivation. Them losing is the only reason i’m still alive. I was born to love and enjoy the failure that they have achieved”.
A third said, “Pep Guardiola needs to seriously rethink whatever the fuck it is he’s trying to do. It’s not fucking working when you lose at home to Brentford. Drop Cancelo, drop Gundogan and stop playing people out of their fucking position. Stupid bald prick needs to sort this shit out”.
Guardiola’s team responded with a stunning shot from Phil Foden in the opening minute of additional time in the first half.
Brentford, on the other hand, won brilliantly in the eighth minute of extra time after the entire 90 minutes. Toney scored from close range as the Bees broke on the counter to make a statement about his omission from England’s FIFA World Cup roster of 26.
It is City’s second defeat of the season, and Arsenal will enter the World Cup competition as league leaders. Later in the day, the Gunners face Wolverhampton Wanderers and have the opportunity to go five points clear of Manchester City.
