    Claudio Bravo has left the club

    Not as bad as some people made out, and suffered, essentially because a significant minority of City fans need a scapegoat. Played Wolves virtually on his own in the 17/18 League Cup, and I also recall a couple of good saves at a Crucial time at Celtic in his first season

    How would you assess Rodri's season?

    He should be more of an attacking threat from set pieces.but I think he'll be better next season.

    Bundesliga 2020/21

    Can anyone name the Pat Jennings lookalike from the above photo? He played in both the 1974 and 1978 World Cups?

    Tony Coton

    The story goes that due to his frightening reputation, Mick Hartford was the only player who never received the Wimbledon "initiation" treatment on his first day. There was also the incident when Birmingham were relegated and 4 opposing fans required hospital treatment after ridiculing the...

    Tony Coton

    Forget Wimbledon and Vinny Jones. Coton was part of arguably the hardest, maddest team in football history, when he played for Birmingham in the mid 1980s. Mick Hartford and Noel Blake were two of the more "sensible" characters.

    Arsenal FA Cup SF Post-Match Thread

    Too many people with a blind spot for David Silva, and his total ineffectiveness against the more energetic teams. Wolves simply bypassed him at the ETIHAD, and should have won by a bigger margin. It was the same against the rags, and the same on Saturday.

    Arsenal FA Cup SF Post-Match Thread

    Too much rotation and the best players lose their sharpness. That's why Guardiola's philosophy is more suited to league football, which allows for the odd slip-up.

    Personally I'd rather be facing a.trip.to Elland Road.than.arguing over.the.ticket allocation for Bournemouth.

    Man of the Match Bournemouth PL (H)

    Silva scored a great goal, but after the first 20 minutes, was merely the 2nd best of a largely disinterested team. If it wasn't for Ederson, we would have lost.

    Media Thread - 2019/20

    Truy amazing how many journalists have deliberately ignored the actual judgement (that City hadn’t misled UEFA over the sponsorship deals), and concentrated instead on the smaller issues, such as the alleged “time-barred” offences, and the fine supposedly being reduced, when in reality, City...

    CAS judgement: UEFA ban overturned, City exonerated (report out p603)

    I look forward to 2 years of Collymore, Delaney, Evans, Harris, Jordan, and Syed, explaining to their audience that City were actually innocent all along.

    UEFA FFP investigation - CAS decision to be announced Monday, 13th July 9.30am BST

    Only once have I ever been offered leaked information, from somebody inside the club, and that was when the doorman outside the Directors Suite confided, just an hour before the announcement of Brian Horton as the new City Manager,, at the Friday night game v Coventry. "Don't quote me, but it's...

    Champions League QF Draw - Lyon

    I want to win it, but I also suspect that in the same way that a Penalty Shootout is cruel, unless it's won by Liverpool or the rags, the value of this year's competition will depend on the identity of the ultimate winner. An extra notch for Real Madrid, Barcelona, or Bayern Munich, but a huge...

    David Silva Statue To Be Placed Outside The Etihad In 2021

    No, because he's no longer suitable or quick enough for those type of games
