Well, considering he hadn't played for ages and the defence once again was porous, he did right to come out for the ball, and as for the sending off - laughable.

But yes, lets hope he has a great game on Sunday and he does have it in his locker although some may disagree
It was but you can bet the dippers divers will do exactly the same if he rushes out on Sunday. For me we need to cut out the trying to play out from the back and play out quickly to our fast front men. He played against Southampton in the league cup.

He had a superb game in the charity shield no reason he can't do it again.

I like this team. We need legs at Anfield, players who can press with high intensity, who can run quickly and fight.

Gabby's form has dipped a bit recently. Thought it was a certainty that he would start, not sure now. Not sure about Kun for 3 reasons though: he can't press with high intensity, speed is not his forte, and he doesn't contribute as much as Jesus when we defend set pieces. But he is a legend, they fear him and he can score. We need not only legs but also leaders on the pitch. So, this one will be a conundrum for Pep.

If we go with 4-3-3:

Bravo
Walker
Stones
Otamendi
Mendy
Dinho
Bernie
Gundy
Kevin
Raz
Aguero/Jesus

I'd probably go with 3-5-2 or rather 3-5-1-1 with Raz with a free role behind Kun/Gabby ready to get on the end of crosses from Kevin, Bernie, Mendy.
I'm sure Sterling was given a free role in the derby we lost 2-3. I know we blew that game but he was unplayable in the first half.

Good points RE Jesus and Ageuro. I had put Jesus in based on his pressing ability, but no one is better in big games than Aguero... He's due a goal at Anfield too!

You could think we are fucked.

But then we had no chance when we last won there, so fuck it going for a city win 3-2

I have no issue with us playing it out from the back. What we need for Sunday is the whole team performing to their abilities i.e. take the chances we create, and defend as a unit

Bravo fucked up massively by coming for a ball he was never going to get to before the striker. We had covering players back, he either needed to react quicker or stay on his line.

It was a fuck up.

Gundogan fucked up, but Bravo did as well.
You just don’t like Bravo.

it was a risk he had to take. One on one - if there had been other City players covering, it would have been a yellow.

So you agree with the ref and VAR officials, fine. Most saw it as a blatant dive

Agree with you totally. But the Bravo haters are revelling in the situation. I can’t understand why some so called City fans love to have a pop, especially when Bravo had to try & stop the forward. In fact he took one for the team - as Vinnie did on many an occasion

I have come to terms that we might lose a football match against a very good dipper side.the facts are we arnt shit we are decimated with injuries so if we do get beaten I hope bluemooners have the sense to realise this.if we are 9 points behind at crimbo then hopefully the luck starts shifting and we get some of the good luck and the dippers some of the bad stuff.i always said I don't expect us to win it every year as long as we give it a go and there are clear mitigating factors this year.but you never know the gap may be 3 points come Monday,heres hoping for an early dipper red card.

Not 100% sure at the moment...

I'm going to go out on a limb here and suggest Pep won't be turning us into Burnley for 1 match.
