It begs the question, are tactics of any advantage in any sport.

Chess perhaps lol . I see Chelsea have beaten City today showing pretty much what we know already- anyone can beat anyone with home advantage counting as much more of a factor towards a result than anything bar maybe ability of players in a team.

Man city are regarded as the best team in England with a home record of 8 wins 0 draws and no defeats having scored 30 goals. Away from home the same team with the same players and same tactics this season has a record of 5 wins 2 draws and a defeat but with a telling goal tally of 15 goals after the same number of games. Simply changing the fans allegiance round a pitch halves the number of goals a team scores for the best side in the country and after a full season virtually every team in every league in the world will show huge differences in home/away record. The same pitch dimensions, same players and same tactics. The evidence illustrating how much of football is mental is beyond doubt.
