Did you count our last win at Wembley by pens as a win or a draw?
Having thought long and hard about this I've now changed my mind to agree with the majority that our run continues, the stipulation of the record is consecutive wins it doesn't state anywhere that the run has to be within 90/120 minutes.
I always though a win is by acoring more goals than the opposition in 90 mins or in 120 mins if extra time played in a cup competition. If it goes to pens its a draw. We won the tie not the match. The other guy is only putting his opinion across which I happen to agree with.
Anyway back to the point of the thread. Since I've followed city there have been two other periods that feel like this. Season 11-12 until everyone started parking the bus after the 6-1 and that 2-3 months from November to January under Pellegrini in 13-14. Scoring loads of goals beating everyone and there being a real sense of excitement and optimism around the club.
This season feels a bit different though as I think we still have a long way to go in terms of how much we can improve. We have a core group of players who could go on and be recognised as the best player in the world in their position and be in the FIfA team of the year - Ederson, Sane, De Byrne, Jesus (maybe Stones) We've not seen the best of this squad and I'm really excited to watch every game and looking forward to see how far Pep can take us.
If you check previous occasions when teams have gone on similar runs they include extra time and penalty shot out wins. Do you think that had we lost the shoot out that the media would say we drew?
We've only got 26 points though, Bournemouth was a draw. GD is more like +23 as well.
One of the teletubies no?
Definitely a dopey twat.
If we do go on and win the league (breaking all time records along the way) will we finally see the likes of Sergio and Silva get the recognition they deserve ?
I agree with you. We drew the match and won the tie on penalties. We still got through to the next round.
Give over. Rocking horse manure is more likely.
No they wouldn't.
But we would have officially drawn the match and lost the tie if that had been the case.
We're still unbeaten (for now - Napoli away will be tough.).
