Alex Hurst is joined by Norman Riley, Charlotte Robson and marc Corby to talk through a home defeat to champions Manchester City at St James’ Park.

Despite the defeat there was a huge improvement in approach and performance from the team and positives in defeat.

We look at why this was different to the previous capitulations against similar sides, why Matt Ritchie makes such a difference to this team and why on earth Jowlinton didn’t take the second pen.
