Find it odd that Dyche has been overlooked in manager of the season tbh.

Do you think that his reaction when Son was through on goal, when they played Spurs was false emotion?
i think hes a manager who is incredibly aware of the cameras at all times, but in that case no, a late one v one that might cost a title is a different moment i dont doubt his heart was in his mouth there. But the city title winning days just annually feel like a local fair or something. Flat and anti climactic and everybody hoping to get home on time for some netflix and a takeaway

Who said it changes that fact? Man City last lost in the league on 6th December. They've only drawn I think 3 games in the league since then. In fact, they've lost 4 games in total all season.

They've done what they've done in every single one of the last 7 seasons, which is have an essentially unbeatable second half of the season.

Its completely delusional to think that if the players just turned up (as if they didn't) and the fans were a bit louder, we'd have just pushed City aside.
The manager quite clearly disagrees. I don't doubt the integrity of your players but when all the noise from your fans is all 'haha, feck Arsenal, who cares about the champions league' it's bound to affect you mentally as a player. Anyway, it's just another missed opportunity now.

The VAR in the Arsenal is the exact reason why it shouldn't exist.... a colossal waste of time.

That's the worst handball decision of a terrible season for referees. No matter where his arm is in relation to his body, Havertz uses it to control the ball. Utter joke. And of course it's Oliver in black.

How does that goal stand for Arsenal? Oliver trying his hardest not to look dodgy because the result doesn't matter?

That should have been disallowed but we dont even care. Meaningless goal.

Random decision for shits and giggles from Oliver. If City was drawing, it would have been disallowed but since it's done he's having some fun.

Honestly shouldn't be anyway, arm right by his side , not a penalty either in today's book

The endless commentary of “greatest Prem team ever” is so nauseating. Yeah let’s just completely ignore the endless financial doping and pending charges.

Completely fake achievement.

It’s the fans who negatively affected their chances by actively routing against their own team with a CL place at stake.

If they had created a thunderous atmosphere, they could well be qualified right now. What Arsenal were doing mattered more than their own team’s future. That’s the issue.
Considering both teams’ respective forms before that match, I don’t see how the fans could have pushed Spurs to beat City, at best a draw which still would have been insufficient for a 5th place finish.

ill say it again - the only chance the pl has at any credibility is just wiping the slate and punishing them then rebuilding. Its farcical
