    'Michael will be a part of that process' Tears of joy in my eyes.

    I am sad to see him go because he was great at his job and he was one of the very few normal people left at the club. But being forced to work with one idiotic manager after another and being abused by a large number of brain-dead 'fans' must have taken its toll. So on that note I'm glad he left and I'm sure his work will be appreciated elsewhere.

    Left on his terms like a real man. Even down to the end he kept his dignity and never once embarrassed the club. And who can blame him for leaving? Four years of working with clowns like Mourinho and Conte would drive anybody crazy. Kudos to him for lasting this long. He deserves so much better and I'm sure he will be a success wherever he goes. Thank you, thank you and thank you.

    Does the injury worry you? At no point to this season has he looked like the athlete I thought he would be. He looks really slow and sluggish. Major concern tbh.
  6. The Conte Thread

    People talking about net spend when the issues is shit, cowardly managers who have zero imagination and ability to construct and make dominant teams. It's always the same negative, 1970s football no matter how much we spend.
  7. The Conte Thread

    He's supposed to be some master tactician but keeps losing the tactical battles. It doesn't add up.
  8. The Conte Thread

    Typical cowardly display against a proper football team. 38% possession at home, chasing shadows for most of the game. Surely for everybody involved this must get boring at some point? It's the same story all the time: we play a decent team and we revert to our usual brand of shit on a stick and rely on disjointed counter attacks and low block. Year in year out nothing changes. Give us a fucking break for once. Damn.

    Getting found out big time.
  10. 23. Michy Batshuayi

    I would genuinely rather have a 40 year old Drogba lead the line. The Burnley game told us everything. This guy is pure trash.

    'come play for me'
  12. 10. Eden Hazard

    Thing is, it's not just one bad loss in a vacuum. It's a game that highlights the gulf in quality and ambition between the two clubs. One team playing stylish, slick football from the future. Another team playing football from the 70s. That was complete and utter domination. Hazard is one of the calmest players and never shows his frustration but he did yesterday on several occasions. He really needs to start using the credit he has built up and demand more before signing a new deal.
  13. 3. Marcos Alonso

    What kind of message does yesterday's game send out to the top players? It's clear why most would prefer to go elsewhere if given the option. If I'm a top player and both clubs are after me, I'm going to to City. The London attraction is the only thing working in our favour.
  14. The Conte Thread

    It's not that simple. You're completely ignoring the fact that one team played like they have been coached to death and have had a style of play ingrained into them. Meanwhile, the other team looked like a bunch of semi-pros with no idea how to even retain possession for more than 5 passes. It's a lot deeper than just bench options. Batshuayi is genuinely terrible by the way. He's a midtable player at best and shouldn't be anywhere near a top European club. I'm not going to kill Conte for not bringing him on, as bad as Willian is I can at least understand the reasoning behind it. It's just a shame Willian produced yet another tragic performance.
  15. 3. Marcos Alonso

    The Monaco vice president said Mendy told him the following: "I really want to go to City with Guardiola." Several times he said to me: "If it was Chelsea, I would stay, but this is Guardiola, I want to go there." He was frank with me." Guardiola has serious clout unlike most other managers.
  16. The Conte Thread

    Outplayed and embarrassed at home in front of the world. So many players looked completely out of their depth and the same goes for Conte too. He was utterly clueless and worst of all, he didn't even try to stop the bleeding. Honestly, I'm glad the club were reminded of the reality of this team and how far off we are from the elite European clubs. Change only comes when things like this happen. If we won 1-0 we'd hear bullshit about another classic smash and grab which only sets us up for failure in the long run.
  17. 10. Eden Hazard

    We linked well against Atletico because they allowed us to. If they tried to play we would have resorted to the usual shit on a stick football. That win has really misled a lot of fans and pundits and made them forget what this team is really about. The Arsenal game wasn't even that long ago. Can you even imagine how good Hazard would be if he was playing for that City team yesterday? Honestly, knowing how good he is and what he can be I hope he leaves in the summer. Don't waste your prime years on low block, 25% possession teams would be my advice.
  18. 9. Álvaro Morata

    His hold up and link play was sensational in my opinion. If this is what he can do on a regular basis then I'm sold.
  19. 10. Eden Hazard

    Tears in my eyes.
  20. 27. Andreas Christensen

    He may not be fast but he definitely isn't a slouch either. He has decent enough pace, especially for a CB.
  21. 28. César Azpilicueta

    It's a joke that Cahill comes on and takes the armband from the real captain.
  22. 24. Gary Cahill

    He genuinely made Cahill captain because 'he won everything'. He offered no other explanation. Braindead management at its worst.
  23. 24. Gary Cahill

    Haven't taken Conte seriously since he made that statement.
  24. 24. Gary Cahill

    It's not based on quality or value to the team. He has a negative impact. Some players display real leadership, this guy just has the right passport.
  25. 24. Gary Cahill

    I lose all respect for managers for things like this. How can you continue to pick somebody this bad?
