One of the worst things about it is we have imo the best, most exciting players and team in the world on our day and have done for the past 3 years. Even if we do ever win the Champions League (which I can't see happening under Pep), I wouldn't want to see us win it in some scrappy, anti-football type way with 5 men at the back with Rodri and Gundogan in front: I'd want to see us go toe-to-toe with other clubs and prove we're the best by winning it the way we became centurions by blitzing other teams away and deservedly winning the trophy.

It was such a cowardly, shithouse way to go out tonight.

One of the worst things is he's always talking in the media about how our club has very little history in the competition and how we have to believe we belong there and then he goes and sets us up like some small team that feels we don't belong there.

He got it wrong but nobody died. Just one.of those things. I was highly critical but let's not throw the baby out with the bath water.
hes got it wrong 4 times mate when on the verge of being in a semi final in Europe, its not just tonite.

Anyway the end of season review in Abu Dhabi with Sheikh Mansour should be interesting.

Trolls and bullies love me
Ffs,pep inherited the oldest team in the prem with four fullbacks over 30,one was 33,all needed replacing and that was just the start to get the average age right down,get rid of the likes of bony and replace him,mp let them get old and unfit for purpose,just what is the point of playing with numbers,the semi final was only one game better than last night

I liked Pellegrini but Pep has not only won the league back to back, in one of the seasons he broke numerous records in the process. Champions League we look better under Pep (although there is still major room for imrovement)

Wouldn’t have picked that team tonight though after 4 years of supposed progress
And what would his resale value be?. Kane has been fantastic for Spuds, there is no guarantees he will transfer that. He may be one bad tackle from retirement with his dodgy ankles.
Yep,Sanchez at the Rags
....or maybe they know he's now a crock,aging beyond his years and will be worthless inside 2yrs?
If you are talking about Benzema he is still better than Kane in terms of what he has achieved individually and in a team. Age means nothing. As for Kane he is the main man in a team that is set up for counter attacking. We aren't set up for that and won't be playing that type of Football as long as Pep is in charge. And he is injury prone and has missed large chunks of last season and is known to have very dodgy ankles.
not fit to lace Aguero's boots
stats mean nothing.

Sergio has played against 10 man packed defences for at least the last 3 seasons

Hold up play isnt something we require...linking play is and Sergio has adapted very well to that....he is more mobile than Kane whereas Kane is a purely central striker and the main man whereas Sergio (again for the last 3 seasons) hasnt been - he is part of a unit.

Ask anyone in the game besides your most diehard spurs fans who they would rather have - Aguero or Kane and id bet virtually every football fan baring those spurs fans would say Aguero

People seem to be righting Aguero off cause he is injured - his goal scoring this season wasnt looking too shabby before that injury (think he was maybe 1 goal behind Raheem at the time or something like that)
Harry “Cane “ the sick note .No thanks.
Because he is past his best as you saw last night. A massive game that passed him by. Indeed Bayern were able to play in the Barcelona half leaving the likes of Boateng and Alaba wide open because they knew that Barca would be overwhelmed and would carry little threat. No way would they play like that against a Leo at the height of his powers.
Messi is bigger then the club. Hes the biggest Problem Barcelona have right now.

He decides the Coaches and transfers . Because of him Suarez and the old Timers always seems to play and have huge contracts( Griezmann is on 900k a week and Suarez ,Busquets,Pique,Alba on 500k)

He's their burden now
What the fuck happened last night? I saw the score but was too pissed to believe it.

Confirmed in the rough as a badgers arse morning.
City win title - Lfc player wins POTY
City win title again - lfc player wins POTY
lfc win title - lfc player will definitely win POTY.

It's embarrassing for the PL and their media.

The excuse book is becoming extremely thin. Tonight was as bad as it gets tactically but at least in Europe he’s constantly evolving to new lows.

Kane is wank.He is just as invisible than (even more so in big games) the rest of our strikers currently on our books. Messi could help but that is too much of a risk even in our current state.
