Re: Petrol or diesel

Let me guess. You formed an opinion 10 years ago about electric cars and their mileage, and then didn't revisit it. Issues with EVs (from someone who worked for the largest manufacturer of EV charging units). 1. An EV is still prohibitively expensive to buy when compared to a ICE vehicle 2. The cha...

He tried to get us playing a certain style when the players at his disposal were not able to adapt. McCann in a midfield 4 didn't work. We could not keep possession so put unnecessary pressure on the back 4. We needed to score 3 or 4 to win a game as you could guarantee we would concede.
