    I don't see the difference between starting a new thread or posting stuff in the wrong thread only that it doesn't make make sense, takes about the same time to do both and you'll probably get more of a reply if it's relevant.

    Watched the Bayern v City match, nothing could be really gauged due to the a amount of kids on show but we did play the pep way for the first 5 mins, after that we we're fcuking knakered:lol

    If it wasn't for Citys second Keeper Cabellero pulling off a few blinding saves in the first half it could have been a pretty a embarrassing scoreline.

    Just bought my CL tickets, 3 games for a ton can't be bad can it to see the like of Messi and Celtics finest.
    Took moans to her first ever match the other week when she didn't know what to buy me for our anniversary, I said get me some City tickets jokingly because I ain't been for a while and got the shock of my life when she agreed.

    It was the Bucharest game, worst fcuking game ever because it was a dead rubber but to my surprise she loved it, thinking back I'm glad I went because it looks like it was Harts last game and better still is her taking to it because it means a season ticket might be back on the cards.

    Funny because after all these years of her bickering about me 'wasting money' watching City, the glory hunting bastard now wants me to spend twice as much taking her aswell lol

    Another good win tonight, set off last night to watch the match and it was like fcuking 'Planes,Trains and Automobiles' swapping Train for Tram and missing the plane out lol.
    Drove to the Met, only to pay £15 quid (for three of us) to get on a Tram that didn't move because of the weather and network being down, I was rushing like a daft cnut buying the tickets b4 the tram fcuked off because it was already at the station, In full panic mode the machines wouldn't accept a fiver so I was moving along them one by one with the Tram in the corner of my eye willing it to stay.
    I got to the 4th machine and lo and behold it worked, so I grabbed the tickets and jumped on the Tram only to be told it's been stuck there for 25 mins lol. Driver then comes round and tells everyone he doesn't know when the network will be working again.

    Off the Tram we Jump and into the car, Traffic was chaos getting to the stadium due to the thunderstorms, Manage to make it by ducking and diving down every side street I know and pay a Tenner to park up.
    Just as I'm about to leave the car Ian Cheesman comes on Radio GMR saying the match is called off, I wouldn't mind but I only persevered getting to the stadium because the cnut kept harping on about how good the pitch and City's drainage system was after it earlier resembling a paddy field.

    So back home it was at a snails pace due to the traffic, talk about a wasted night.

    Tonight made up for it though as it was another good display from the Citizens, Aguero hatrick and Gundogan debut, the latter looked a bit ring rust but in patches you could see his quality.
    De Bruyne looked a class act again though, he's going to become one special player.

    Bravo pulled off a cracking save to his left too, probably the only save he made all night but it was one of those a certain Mr Hart would have struggled with.

    Good to see you watch a good game after all that!

    City have been a pleasure to watch. Brilliant at times. De Bruyne, Iheanacho and Sterling have really impressed. I think City are capable of going unbeaten all season. BetVictor offering 25/1 on that. I know it's a long season but bit big that no? I'm not betting but those odds surprise me. So did the 3/1 about going unbeaten at home. Class with and without Aguero.

    Not sure what's happening with Utd, but out to 14/1? :eek My Utd pals are shouting for Rooney's head, but i also get the feeling one or two of them have always targeted him first just because he's scouse.

    Kloppy is a likeable chap isn't he!
    To go to London and get 7 pts from Arsenal, Spurs and Chelsea is superb. And the noise that's coming down from our new stand is going to be worth at least 8pts by the end of the season.

    Arsenal v Chelsea is a huge game this weekend! The fans will turn on whoever loses that.

    Anyone dare to shout up the 1,2,3,4 this season?

    How City are 4/6 to win the premiership (1.7 on betfair) totally baffles me. I know all about their attacking flair and the quality of their squads and the good start they've had but they've played five games against the teams currently bottom four of the premiership and they've conceded a goal in every fucking game. Add to that tonight's game at Celtic (surely championship level at best) where they've already conceded two goals inside 20 minutes and you have to wonder if they are really going to go all through the season without crumbling against lesser competition as they did so many times last season.

    Crazy fucking price

    If you keep talking sense like this ODM, Slick will have you banned from the forum, one of his City colleagues at work said they would win everything this season when we left work tgt, and he really did mean it.

    Saying that, if its between them and the scousers for the league title, all Utd fans will be cheering them on to win it, and they hate it.

    Seriously! Conceding 8 goals to five shit teams in six games. I don't care how much firepower you have, you ain't gonna win the league doing that.

    Never once have I said we'll win anything, in fact I told you we'll win fcuk all this year unlike yourself who thought United would come storming back under Mourinhio, I'm pretty surprised how well City have done under Pep truth be told unlike the shite you have been playing under LVG mk2.

    My biggest concern for a long while has been our defence but Pep's overcoming that by just scoring more than we concede which is leading to some belting football.

    Tonight was another shambles of a defence but what a match, great game to watch and well done to Celtic for giving it a go, I'd rather watch that than a drab 0-0 masterclass of defending.

    Anyhow, fcuk off and get posting in the Thursday night thread:lol

    Knew you would be on, its like an alarm clock going off.

    The post said one of your work colleagues (are you pished), now who leaves at the same time as us.

    Ha ha how did we get on Saturday with a decent team out for once.

    I know who you meant but would you really class him as a knowledgeable football fan or a City Fan pre circa oil money.
    Anything he say's goes in one ear and out the other, I was talking about Nicky Weaver once and he said 'is he the guy who sews the badges on the kit' .

    And if you think you've turned the corner after beating an uninterested Leicester on Saturday, you're more deluded than he is.

    Anyhow, why are you not in bed? I thought Cleggy was picking you up tomorrow, you know he'll turn up about 3am.

    I bet they're not now lol.

    Mistake after Mistake, every goal we seem to concede seems to come from a mistake.
    The Honeymoon period is now definitely over, hopefully Pep now see's how dire our defenders are and stops the fcuking about at the back because it's become comical.

    Funny thing is we played well tonight but with the fcuking about got stuffed lol, back to basics Pep please until you buy a couple of decent defenders and David De Gea:unsure

    I think most keepers would have done that tell the truth, my biggest bug bear is that he didn't need to come that far out and the defenders in front of him should never have put him in that position.
    We're just not good enough at the back to pass the ball about as Pep wants, if anything this might be the eye opener Pep needs and not a bad game for it to happen because we were never expected to win there.

    Up until the fcuk up we weren't playing that badly even after going one down with another mistake, but anytime a team comes at us (not just Barcelona) you know they're either gonna score or at least create a chance, we usually counteract that by just scoring more but against the top teams we're getting taught a lesson.
