Even by City standards that was one shit pen!
I'm claiming that assist! Mrs Ewing will confirm I told the lass to miss it a second or two before the ref blew!

And the ref, think we might have had her before, or I'd seen her in the Olympics, has followed in a long line of shite whistlers.

And here I was, contemplating all the strengthening that we've made would result in a more dynamic and pacy approach to the game and just taking a few seconds to get the ball into the Real area. We are carrying on where we left off last season. I couldn't believe that we had a corner and three passes later Real have a corner. It's slow, it might be patient, it might be possession-based, but it's fuckin' slow! The young Jamaican scoring machine has not been provided with much more than a sniff! We are playing as though a 0-0 would see us through!

We've only been back in training with the squad for about a week. Give it a chance.

I suspect the same applies to Madrid so we are on a level playing field in that respect, but having watched the Women for a while we are playing tonight the way we finished last season! Slow and ponderous, poor touch - Madrid seem to have better first touch than we do, and seem to find their players a lot more easily than we do. We are fortunate that their finishing is pretty grim.
