Well, Monaco . 5-2 Porto.
drought? Isn't he scoring in all games?
Any English side could win the UCL this season.
milner has been great
Besiktas up again.
Besiktas take the lead against RBL.
Penalty to City
City get a penalty. 2-1.
2-1 Feyenoord. Deserved. Napoli have completely given up in the second half.
Brahim Diaz and Foden been real positives today, Bernardo, Yaya and Gundogan should hang their heads in shame.
Countinho had a brazilian buttlift?
Only City are the only possible side who can win the Champions League. It begins in February now when the big boys show up so you can beat Juventus, Bayern, Madrid, Barcelona will all be at the top of their game and If they are, there isn't much English teams can do
failed to score against brighton
Napoli concede another in Rotterdam. 2-1.
So, first loss of the season for City. Hope for the same on Sunday
We beat Napoli, we're better than Dortmund.
Really, sack Peter Bosz
Brexit Boy Le Tissier isn't happy that the ref blew the whistle 3 seconds early.
Shaktar deserve that. They were much the better team.
I hope it would destroy their confidence
I think playing our B-team and three kids and having the derby on Sunday had a lot to do with us half-arsing the game, haha.
Not surprised, no English teams have defeated Shaktar at their home!
Yes first defeat for City! Second to come on sunday!
Porto, Besiktas, City, Shakhtar, Liverpool, Seville, Tottenham and Real are through.
City get their standard penalty as always. I swear they get more penalties than any other team in Europe. I wonder what the statistics are. They must be way out in front.
Nope and no team have taken any points at Old Trafford this season! Time for defeat number 2!
They aren't nearly the forces they were over the last few seasons. Absolutely no reason why an English club, and not just City, can win it this year.
Tbf, it was very much a second string side. Just 3/4 could say they are first team players.
Yeah not even the ref and Jesus could save them this time though. Not on sunday either hopefully. De Gea will save the cheap penalty and us to win 2-0!
The Europa League this season is strong. Napoli, Atletico, Dortmund, Leipzig and Sporting going there is not bad. Glad we won it last year
or from someone that feels like Pepe has been overrated all of his Managerial career!
Sevilla look shit. I would probably want them the most. After that Porto then Shaktar. I want to avoid Bayern the most think they will be really difficult this season. Real Madrid is tricky though as they could turn it around still I don't fear them that much at the moment.
I was saying to a city poster that there is a culture of playing for the penalty in City, as there is in all Guardiola teams. I dont mean that they are diving, but that Pep tells them to take tackles when in the box and play for the penalty. He tells them to keep moving and trying things that will lead to a penalty.
Shaktar better team, no complaints. We were really poor first half and moderately poor in the 2nd. Foden, Diaz did well, if I was Pep I'd leave Bernardo and Gundogan at home for the derby and put those 2 on the bench. They've earned it and the later 2 have offered nothing tonight. In a game where they should be trying to play their way into the squad they did a combined feck all. Diaz created more in his half hour than they did in an hour and a half, as did Foden from left wing back.
Fun fact: Liverpool qualified for the round of 16 for the first time since 2009
Was a great competition to be part of when we were in it in 2010 and 2012. Loads of great memories. Must be even better to win it. Hasn't exactly done Sevilla or Chelsea or yourselves any harm.
So who could we get and who has gone down to the EL from the CL?
The La Liga approach to footie.
