    Chelsea (N) | FA Cup SF | Post-Match Thread

    Just incredible result and performance considering how little time we had. So proud of every one of our players they managed to put in a performance against a real bogey team- this season anyway. Onto another final!

    FA Cup Semi-Final | City v Chelsea pre-match thread

    The ridiculously short turn around after the Champions League make this incredibly difficult. We should still be able to put together a formidable side but we need to deal with Chelsea better than the previous two meetings. We allowed them to counter too easily. It would be great to finally get...

    Real Madrid post match post mortem

    Over 30 shots, 20 corners, one goal. Brilliant up to the box, dreadful in the box. We’re out against an average Real Madrid side because a horrible defensive howler first half and 2 of the worst penalties I’ve ever seen. Our set piece coach is stealing a living.

    Real Madrid (H) - Wed 17th April, 20:00 | CL | Pre-Match Thread

    We are better than them, we are more balanced, we have a very consistent controlled style of play and we have some real match winners. Real are more chaotic and play in a weaker league though they have standout players if their own. We should win, the only niggling doubt is Real’s ability to...

    Luton Town (H) | Sat 13th April, 15:00 | PL | Pre-Match Thread

    While we definitely need to rest some tomorrow we can’t afford to go to overdo it. Hopefully KDB and Ederson will be back tomorrow. Would like to see Haaland start as he needs goals. As long as we have a strong enough side out we should be fine.

    PL charge City for alleged breaches of financial rules

    His profile pictures are different people. His older tweets are signed Tony. Whatever he may be he certainly isn’t a credible journalist.

    Luton Town (H) | Sat 13th April, 15:00 | PL | Pre-Match Thread

    They were both rested against Palace, though Bernardo played a couple of minutes as a late sub. Gvardiol was a doubt for Madrid so may need to be managed. If Grealish doesn’t have any issues then he should play. I suspect Pep will fit Alvarez in somewhere

    Luton Town (H) | Sat 13th April, 15:00 | PL | Pre-Match Thread

    Last season we had Gundogan who could do a great job as a 6, no one so far has shown they can step in as well. I think Rodri, Stones, Phil, Bernardo and maybe Josko will be rested Saturday. If Walker’s fit enough he’ll play an hour or so with Rico at left back.

    Real Madrid (A) - Tues 9th April, 20:00 | CL | Pre-Match Thread

    So it’s either Rico or Gvardiol tomorrow? Two seasons ago Walker’s injury cost us against Real. Hopefully it won’t be the case tomorrow. I’d guess that Pep will make sure Akanji is up against Vinicius Jr and if Lewis plays it will be be left back if Gvardiol is out. It will be very tough match...

    Crystal Palace (A) - Sat 6th April, 12:30 | PL | Pre-Match Thread

    Palace have done better than most against us though they have done better at the Etihad than Selhurst Park. They have usually played counter attacking football but I don’t know how their new coach will setup tomorrow but most likely will try and hit us on the break. As for us, it will be...

    Aston Villa (H) - Wed 3rd April, 20:15 | PL | Pre-Match Thread

    It would be nice to see us rediscover our scoring touch. We have rarely been outplayed, Villa away being one of our worst performances, but we haven’t quite hit our ruthless best, we haven’t really crushed sides like last season. It would be great and well timed to find that sharpness for the...

    Arsenal (H) - Sun 31st Mar, 16:30 | PL | Pre-Match Thread

    We haven’t really performed in big games (bar the derbies) this season but tomorrow is very good time to correct matters. Stones is a big loss and Arsenal are in great form as well. That said we have the highest ceiling of any team in the league and if anyone can set us up properly it’s Pep...

    The Title Race - 2023/24

    It seems inevitable that the Arsenal match will be decisive. Win and I believe it will give us the momentum to finish the season, a draw is advantage Liverpool and to an extent Arsenal, a defeat would realistically end our chances, 4 points behind 2 teams and hoping for snookers.

    Liverpool (A) | PL | Post Match Thread

    Very much a game of two halves. We started really well, though Alvarez was really obviously struggling, if ever a game cried out for Grealish it was this one. Despite that we had a lead and a few decent chances unfortunately poor final balls wasted some great opportunities. All the same it felt...

    Liverpool (A) - Sun 10th Mar, 15:45 | PL | Pre-Match Thread

    First goal is huge, since Pep arrived our only win arrived when we scored first, when they score first they’ve won all bar the 2-2 a couple of seasons ago. The only thing I am worried about is Pep’s habit of changing the team to try maintain control but blunting our attacking edge. It will be...

    United (H) | PL | Post Match Thread

    The game reminded me a little of the away match against Arsenal last season and not just the score line. We wore them down, took a while but by the end they were exhausted. We really need to start taking our chances in first halves of matches. We’re making it so much harder on ourselves. Phil...

    United (H) | PL | Sun 3rd March, 15:30 | Pre-Match Thread

    I don’t like it when we’re so heavily favoured in the derby. United can go out and play (or more likely park the bus and counter) without any real pressure. We need to start fast, can’t afford one of those sleepy first halves like against Everton, Brentford and Chelsea. They have been far...

    The Title Race - 2023/24

    What’s incredible is the amount of stoppage time Liverpool and Arsenal get when they need a goal. We had 4 min against Chelsea and Arsenal. Also how long the injury time is when we’re a goal up…

    It's Quiet 18 - Wanna ring the bell?

    Chelsea could be in PSR bother so selling a club produced player like James produces a huge profit (hence they’ve been open to selling Gallagher)

    Bluemoon Under The Cartel's Irish Academic Microscope?

    I still think the whole notion of sportswashing when it comes to City is nonsense. The Abu Dhabi involvement with City has pushed UAE human rights issues far more into the media. Similarly would any major media outlet report on UAE’s involvement in Yemen as an issue if not for Sheikh Mansour...
