They thought that was their Aguero moment Mk. II.

Love when this thread is bumped :lol:

Now hopefully Liverpool get knocked out by Barca in the next round, City go on to win the PL and Wolves win the FA Cup.
Watford ;)

Chelsea 07 and United 09 are still the two closest teams to coming near the quadruple in the modern era, both reached the semi finals of all competitions those years.

Mixed feelings on this one

I like Sterling a lot and respect Pep, and am a bit worried what psychologically this might do to them in the title race - but also feck the blue nose bitter oil trash cnuts.

On the other hand I like Poch a lot but hate Spurs fans and think their players are a bunch of snide pricks.

Colour me confused.

This was the best chance that will come for many a year - probably many a decade - for a club to win the quadruple.

I'm delighted that Spurs stopped a sugar-daddy club from doing it. They will likely never come so close again.

"Gee, Vincent. What'll we do next season?"

"Same thing we do every season, Kevin. Try to take over the world!"



Vincent and De Bruyne, Vincent and De Bruyne, one is a genius, the other's insane.

They'll struggle to get a better chance that they had this season.

Their cup draws this season have been ludicrously kind, tough to see them getting that level of luck in all 3 cups again.

Piss easy cup run and a very favourable route to the CL final with Schalke, Spurs and Ajax, they won’t have a better chance.

Maybe, especially in terms of the luck with their draws. Said in another thread though that actually Chelsea (07) and United (09) went closer than this City side as both teams went to at least the semi final in every competition in those seasons. You guys just put a stop to them joining that list :devil::D

Pfff! I told ya!

Never thought, not even for a moment, that Pep's City was strong enough to beat Liverpool, Barça or Juve in the UCL.

But the disaster vs. the Spurs was most unexpected, to be fair.

City is already the English version of PSG.

I bet he'd take this strike over a quadruple any day.
I bet he wouldn't.

Still not keen on them being the first side to get the domestic treble but it's better than Liverpool winning the league.

...and it's nowhere near as good as our Treble 20 years ago :cool:

Leading them to another title. Hell of a strike to win it today.

Probably the best value for money signing they've ever made. 6m was it? What a player.

He might talk shit about quadruples, be injured 36 games a season, have a head the size of Ayres Rock, but he comes up with huge goals when he does get them.
Megamind is the greatest captain in this clubs history.

Looking very much like he's saying his goodbyes here.

What a goal that was, out of nowhere, i'd kill to have a leader like that could have got sent off at one point.

We were close to doing the domestic treble won the league and fa cup but lost to villa in the league cup.

It's not over yet, brighton away looks easy, same with liverpool at home to wolves, remember utd away to west ham, blackburn away to liverpool, city home to qpr nerves can get to you, first 20-30 mins of those games will be interesting.

So this is what he meant when he said a quadruple is only a matter of time.
