    Media coverage 2018/19

    A quality view on what City have achieved from US media, much needed after BS "football is ruined" narratives post FA cup final http://www.espn.com/soccer/blog/marcottis-musings/62/post/3858143/manchester-city-are-the-greatest-team-of-the-premier-league-era

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

    City lacks an advocate sitting on the board, huge difference it seems!

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

    The actual corruption is plainly stated in the final 2 paragraphs of the Times article, where Panja notes the PSG chairman is on the UEFA board, and his BEIN Sports is the biggest rights bidder for UEFA. Hence PSG (who had the same the "inflation of sponsorships" years back but at exorbitant...

    Media coverage 2018/19

    He is unbearable on ESPN, he was the Rag blogger previously there but got upgraded to "Senior Writer" and still spouts horrible pro-Manure/anti-City trash generally

    Europa League - Quarter Finals - 7th & 14th April (Karaoke 2nd Leg, Page 25)

    yeah sorry just late catching up on this thread. At least that makes the spectre of nil-nil through 210 minutes in the semis a virtual impossibility!! I appreciate great defending but can do without turgid stalemates...

    Pep Out

    I wouldn't call Otamendi trash, but seriously he screws up more in one game than Pique does in a month. Pique has calm, something that most all of our CBs could use.

    Player Topic: Raheem Sterling (2015/16)

    Maybe you are thinking of Alexis' season in 2010-11 when he was 22 (his last year at Udinese before Barca signed him), but his season of 2009-10 when he was 20-21 (Dec birthday like Raheem), he scored 6 in 36 games in all comps. Sterling has already scored 150% of that goal tally by early December!

    Monchengladbach post match (top of the group)

    Just a superb performance in the 2nd half, thrilling to see City's relentless work pay off, BMG def wore down with the continued pressure and likely the exertions from the Bayern match too. What an amazing birthday for Sterling, hope he celebrates mightily but skips the shisha! On the media bias...

    Champions League Games 8th & 9th /3 (page 16)

    very unconvincing penalty attempt by Dzeko, lucky to even win the penalty, Roma having a mare all through

    Sevilla v City post match thread

    Giddy from that display and getting ahead of things, but play wisely and with the motors charged up like tonight in Turin, snag a win and then City could play Willy at #10 and Navas in goal on the last matchday!!!

    Sevilla v City post match thread

    Stellar tactical setup by Pellegrini, immense performance from all, especially the Ferns, Sterling and Sagna. Yaya was superb too, the setup seemed to stoke his motor in some fashion, really was up for it. I love Silva like no other but I wonder if his ball retention tendencies and slower pacing...

    The Derby Post Match Thread

    Yeesh glad to get a point after a pretty miserable display, we were awful in possession and KDB has to take a fair amount of blame for that. I just wish he could play for some ball retention occasionally like Silva, just corral a pass a hold the ball and look for a moment, I know it is not his...

    Post match thread : Borussia Monchengladbach away CL

    Platini was previously a huge foe of goal line tech, so there is none in UEFA comps, including the Euros. Apparently he changed his mind in 2014, but they still are not implementing until 2016 Euros.

    Post match thread : Borussia Monchengladbach away CL

    Wonderful the boys pulled out all 3 pts, despite a very lackluster showing. Someone earlier in the thread said make Joe vice-captain, good idea and at the least he should be ahead of Kolarov in terms of the armband. Aleks never engages the ref as a captain should, even when Yaya is not running...

    Player Topic: Eliaquim Mangala (2015/16)

    The Argies were all miserable in defense today, a real shocker. Mangala gets endless stick, despite the fact that since he came to City he has been a part of more clean sheets than any other defender (15 if my memory serves). He has adjusted to the league, but Otamendi is gonna take time to...

    Match Thread | Sunderland vs Manchester City (22/09/15)

    Central defenders only? I'd say Sagna in present form, Martin is great positionally, but I always fear for him beaten for pace, happened at the weekend a bit in the 2nd half even though we were not punished for it.

    Arsenal and Chelsea both charged by FA

    Gabriel had his red overturned, can they ban Mike Dean for life while they're at it? That knob seems both incompetent and bent, incredible combo.
