  2. The self indulgent clapping on your doorstep is coming back

    I think this thread is a bit unfair. Yeah, what should be happening is that the government should be funding the NHS properly rather than backing this gesture however I wouldn't take it out on the people participating. On my street, there are 4-5 people who did it each Thursday during the...
  3. Cavani gets 3 match ban from FA for his social media post

    Zero tolerance of what exactly? He hasn't done anything wrong and has been punished, that's the problem.
  4. Anyone else feeling ok after losing to City in the semi-final of the Carabao Cup?

    I don't mind because: a.) It's the League Cup b.) We lost to the most expensive squad ever assembled, who have played 2 games (or so) over the past fortnight vs our 5. c.) Playing City is a good assessment of how much we've improved. We're no longer petrified of the ball when pressed and...
  5. Victor Lindelöf | 2020/21 Performances

    Don't understand what he was doing for the first goal. Also, he is way too willing to pass responsibility onto someone else, especially when he's being pressed. Needs to watch how Maguire takes initiative to play out of situations. (Bailly does it too TBF)
  6. Cavani gets 3 match ban from FA for his social media post

    Me too! My Latin American partner is also happy - she felt her culture was being violated by this FA ruling.
  7. Bluemoon goes into Meltdown

    I was very drunk/hungover TBF so you could well be right. The way I remember it was the day was good but the game was dire. Some City fans walked over to one of the United-assigned pubs outside the ground before the game swearing and throwing plastic glasses of beer. Someone took one of their...
  8. Bluemoon goes into Meltdown

    I went back to a girl's the night before the FA semi vs City 9/10 years ago. When I mentioned I couldn't sleep over as I was travelling to Wembley in the AM, she told me she was a City fan. Got a text en route about how she hopes 'the Munichs' lose. Chances are she probably didn't know what...
  9. Ronaldo vs Ronaldo

    Where do Morrison and Wilson rank against CR7/R9 in terms of potential? Anyway, CR7 > R9 and it's not even close. He and Messi have been undoubtedly the best players in the world for over a decade... That's longer than R9's meaningful career and he wasn't 'the best' for that period either
  10. Bruno Fernandes | 2020/21 Performances

    I'd imagine City will rest players in the EFL Cup - opportunity for us to remain competitive whilst starting VDB or Pogba in Bruno's place. If we lose, we lose.
  11. Tyrone Mings stamp on Zlatan | He’s at it again

    Two articles on the BBC football homepage about Pogba's awarded one not being a penalty too! Remember when Maguire put his arm on Azpilicueta? Analysis, articles, memes for days.
  12. Harry Maguire | 2020/21 Performances

    He's actually undroppable, probably our most important defensive player.
  13. Eric Bailly | 2020/21 Performances

    Let's not go too far. He was good but so was AWB, also Maguire.
  14. Marcus Rashford MBE | 2020/21 Performances

    Thought he was actually pretty good today considering he was playing in his least favoured position. Finishing and decision making could have been better though!
