    Coman 10 titles in a row. 

    Do you mean leagues titles? i think it is just 2013-2021 if you count the ones for psg where he only played very few mins each and neglect that he mainly played for PSG B who did not win their title in 2013 or 14.

    B side, penalty given / not given, media crying, players crying, blab, blab ... what matter is that both team fought well, Chelsea were the more resolute one and emerged worthy winner. Kudos to the ones who havent got much chances but played superb when provided an opportunity. 👏👏👏👏👏

    Absolutely pathetic cringe whining by the media. Rewatched both incidents: Gilmour clearly wants to get out of the way but what is Jesus doing there? It looks like he lets the ball run past him, moves away from it searching for contact.

    Same goes for Sterling. He is notorious for his only move being running into the penalty box, then slowing down, looking for contact and hitting the deck. absolutely no sympathy for that even though there might be a case for penalty bczouma is clumsy if not for the fact that sterling is already tumbling before there is any contact.

    Pep has clearly instructed his players to hit the deck at every opportunity looking for pens cos they struggled to get shots on goals otherwise. He probably calculated anthony taylors hate for us. lets hope this will not work in the final.

  3. Rabiot can apparently be had at a cut price deal for 17m. Anything in it or just lazy journalism?

    not quite sure how his relationship with TT at Psg really was but i could totally see him work with kovacic in midfield. Also another leftie. Would be a decent signing IMO 

  4. A player with his style always trying to run behind the defence is at great risk of being flagged for offside all the time. I want him to time his runs a little better but I dont want him to start doubting himself over those offsides and refraining from those runs. City can be unlocked with pace.Offside trap is their only weapon to stop fast players while maintaining a high line

    This was a pretty good weekend for us, all results. The thing I like best is we are making it happen, the other results are a bonus. 

    glorious weekend all things considered. Westham lost, Leicester lost, we won, ManUre keep the pressure on city and stay motivated for their games vs leicester and pool. I can totally see us already securing top 4 at the Emirates in midweek.

    Moreover,as  I do not support any other club, I am usually rooting for the underdogs in the smaller leagues. Lille and Atletico are about to break the wheel in their leagues. Can't stand Real and PSG at all so quite happy they probably win fuck all this season. Same goes for the mafiosi at Juve.

    Well, you could certainly be right so I won't take that bet but I don't think Cancelo has been that good over the last couple of months. Of the two I'd say he's most at risk of not starting.

    Most likely lineup IMO is

    ederson 

    Walker

    dias

    stones 

    cancelo

    rodri 

    gündogan 

    kdb 

    foden

    mahrez

    silva

     

    not sure about the system pep will surely tinker a bit. Let’s hope he gets it wrong again. Biggest threat IMO is their immense depth and variability tho. Can easilu bring aguero, Jesus, Sterling, Torres all one and one will find a way through . We need to score more than once I guess. I think this year city have become better at defending but worse at counter attacking so if we can win the midfield battle it would be a good sign

    I wonder, does anyone outside of United’s orbit actually rate OGS as a coach? Like, you rarely ever see him on the sidelines actually doing anything. Usually just sits in his chair staring like a dope. His team follow almost the same pattern every week. They always go behind and then come roaring back to eventually win so it’s not like he often sets them up well from the start.

    He just seems to be fortunate to have very good players in very specific positions to keep riding this wave all season. Fall behind, win. Fall behind, win. Over and over.

    Hope it finally catches up with these bastards next season.

    It's probably a combination of extreme ref bias and their good players. They have a relatively solid defence and very pacy attackers + penandes. I think any team with these base factors and this amount of "luck" in terms of ref decisions would do well.

  8. They are due an absolute hammering. Sure they will be up for it, but their confidence is low while ours is sky high. They have played about as many games as we have in recent weeks so should not be that much of a disadvantage recovery wise. Travel should not be a problem either. Finely poised for us thrashing them

    After a poor touch that killed any chance he would get a strike on goal.

    Sterling was never in control of his body and always going down after that touch.football is a contact sport. Zouma always looks clumsy but he did not foul Sterling there

    This is why I wonder whether Guardiola try to change tack and defend a bit deeper in the final. 

    He probably will but that gives us more space between the lines . Also it is somewhat in pros dna to lay with a high line otherwise his counter pressing does not work. They played with a deeper line after the equaliser yet we manager to get behind

    It's obvious there is no great difference between the two teams.
    So the wild favouritism for City in the final is unjustified.

    They are the more rounded squad but with their high line they get eaten alive by our pace .
