    Watched the second half, and Rony Lopes did very well. MOTM, at least in the second half. He was playing on the left side, maybe we should have kept him? Aouar looks like some player for Lyon

    If Lopes keep this up we might move for him in the summer. He'll surely count as club trained and is played in positions we badly need width in. It's also very clear that he still loves our club.

    He has 6 goals and 9 assists this season, which is pretty decent. Can play RW, LW or AM, and he would be a great squad player. Turned 22 in december, and I would LOVE to have him back here. He still posts things about City on Twitter, and could be open for a move maybe. I even talked to him privately on instagram the day he left us and wished him good luck at Monaco and he even replied me. I'm not sure if he would count as homegrown. He spent two and a half years here, before he was loaned to Lille then sold the following summer. I think it has to be three years to be a homegrown player, but I could be wrong.

    I just remembered when Pellegrini confirmed that we'd only sent Lopes out on loan...only for the club to announce an hour later that we'd sold him. Fucking lol. Forgot how farcical that was.

    Bernardo Silva is his best friend as well. Ironically Bernardo going straight into Monaco's team was supposedly part of his reasoning for joining Monaco, but they never played together.

    Neymar is expected to be out for 3 months, it’s a shame tbh

    This is one reason I would never want us to spend 200m+ on one single player. It’s too big of a risk.

    PSG look to be out of the CL at an early stage. Can’t see them winning the CL anytime in the near future, their league is just too easy. They would walk the league even without Neymar and Mbappe.

    Yep. Bad news for him and them but I’d fancy us more against Madrid than against PSG in th CL so every little helps.

    Said the same when they were drawn together.

    Sometimes there is a mental ceiling that teams need to burst through to make it all the way in the CL, and simply signing expensive prospects may not be enough, especially when the draw is unkind. In a league bereft of strong competition, PSG would probably need quite a few breaks elsewhere to progress further.
