It obviously is. 

You say that, but the BBC website says almost exactly the same thing and it definitely isn't sarcasm. Who can tell these days when the media are so far up P£p's arse?

I can't work out what winters point is. Is he saying fair play for playing despite having 7 1st teamers missing? Even though he's saying they have the biggest squad and the rules are different in the fa cup and they've no choice but to play?

 

Or is he complementing them for actually using 1st team players? Even though they don't play for a week, so it's in their interests to keep them sharp?

I like Winter as a writer but that's pure bollocks or sychophancy. city announced they had 21 'covid positive' cases, when they had previously reported none, only after Torres had left them to join Barcelona who actually announced their new signing was positive and on the eve of this game.

 

City, along with all other PL clubs, would have known in advance the FA decree that all ties involving PL clubs should go ahead this weekend or else. Instead, city announced to the media at the same time as they did their covid cases, that their cup tie would go ahead 'no matter what.' Yeah, against a League Two club and in the knowledge of the FA's decree.

 

Call me a cynic but this is pure bullshit from city and Winter for being taken in by city's bluff. Shouldnt Winter and his co horts actually be praising League Two outfit Swindon, who have a fraction of city's resources, getting a team out while not cryarsing about the number of covid cases in their ranks and not spilling their guts all over the place about the tie going ahead 'no matter what'?

City said what they said purely because they wanted to look like the good guys after the hammering we took for asking for a postponement.

Been thinking the exact same thing. Such is their media & PR dept’s obsession with us I wouldn’t be surprised if they counted up all positive cases of employees on the payroll and announced it so that their fulfilment of the fixture would look all noble compared to nasty Liverpool having to postpone a game.

 

Abu Dhabi FC, saving football once again.

 

Cunts.

Totally agree which is why Winter's piece is bullshit.

The pro-oil cheat propaganda is out in full force today, and, honestly it makes me fucking sick.
The state of these headlines. It’s actually nothing to do with billions of blood petro dollars or openly cheating FFP, their success is apparently down to a lack of stupidity and changing the complexion of the premier league.

The scum editor being at lock down parties shows us how free from corruption our press is. These 2 journalists are about the best of the bunch usually too.

I hope Chelsea beat them tomorrow to give us a bit of hope.

Read the Barney Ronay piece and he fairly goes to town on them. Couldn't argue with any of it.

Yet some think it's all to do with peps genius and the clubs footballing prowess. City's success is 100 percent because they're owned by a country whose ruling class spend billions through boredom and to sportswash. They're cheats they've cheated the game and robbed other clubs of silverware and the premierleague longterm is fucked because people will get fed and its popularity dwindle.

 

Same goes for Chelsea too. The whole loan system needs fixing.

Boring club, boring fans. They've reduced winning stuff to a procedure with a formula, with everything that makes football great, missing. 

 

They win leagues the way a train spotter accumulates engine numbers.

If we win our game in hand against Leeds, the difference between us will be fours draws. Should be two, given the 'generous' refereeing they benefited from against Arsenal and Wolves. Not bad considering the run they've been on.

And the generous refereeing Spurs got at White Hart Lane, don't forget.

I feel I’m generally very positive about us.

 

I have faith we can go on a great run and take a significant amount of points.

 

Klopp giving it biftas at full time today, to me, suggests we can also go on a great run and not give up.

 

I just don’t have the faith the remaining sides can take enough points from City to make a fist of it.


Them drawing 4 games is also reliant on us winning 17/17. 

 

If we get / keep everybody fit, and I know it’s a massively tall order, I don’t think doing our part is necessarily unachievable, I just don’t currently see another 3 sides doing us a favour.

Same mate, realistically I reckon we'll just fall short. I just think that with the doom and gloom around here with how we're playing and the fact that City are winning game after game, it's worth remembering that our position isn't too bad considering.

I can’t say more than I think we can put a great run together, I don’t think City will drop enough.

 

Yesterday felt a demoralising kick in the balls. Not just the result, but the way City, comfortably, beat the European Champions & side second in league.

 

Granted, that might say more about Chelsea yesterday (especially how they bust their nuts against us) but still, City were very good & rarely troubled.

 

I don’t want to sound defeatist, I genuinely believe in us, I just don’t believe in anybody else. 
 

Still, if we don’t do our part and give all we’ve got, we’ll never know. 
 

But no, our position isn’t dreadful. At all. If Thiago can stay fit (I know…) I genuinely believe we’re the team to beat, even above City.

    • Afrique Victime by Mdou Moctar   Chismiten - The album starts with this crazy electric guitar in a scale/ mode I'm not familiar with. The voices are all African language. Upon first impression, it sounds like Bombino. I like Bombino, so I'm all ears. The guitar is very psychedelic and dreamlike. The drums stay in the same rhythm throughout the track, occasionally branching off into fills. The track suddenly morphs at 3.15 into a Santana Black Magic Women-esque outro. Explosions of sound. Cymbals start crashing. Big open chords. 8/10   Taliat - It'd be interesting to find out what scale the guitarist plays in because it's so alien to Western ears. It feels like Axis Bold as Love merged with African music theory. It's a beautiful sound. 7/10   Ya Habibti - This one starts with an acoustic guitar. It's got the strongest songwriting ethic on the album so far. I don't understand the words, but the vocal melody is much more robust in this one. Harmonies on the vocals really bring up the chorus. The translation says the chorus is "oh my love, my heart beats fast, when I think of you". It's a song about being infatuated with a girl. 8/10   Tala Tannam - This is similar to the previous track. Almost a lullaby. Reading the lyrics, there's an unpretentiousness to the lyrics. It's all about being in love. It would seem corny to hear those words in English speaking songs, but the language barrier creates a degree of separation where you can just appreciate a lovesong for what it is. 7/10   Untitled - Throwaway track. Pointless really. A woman is tending to a goat with a cool little electric guitar part over it. Doesn't go anywhere. 2/10   Asdikte Akal - The psychedelic guitar is back. The open barre chords. This is a song about his homeland. There's lots of imagery of deserts and crossing great plains to be with his love. There's a strong melody and chorus to this one. At around 3.20, it explodes into a guitar outro. 7/10   Layla - I don't know whether this song is about an actual gazelle or the gazelle is a metaphor for a woman - I'd hazard a guess it's the latter, but I kind of want it to be about a gazelle. "Layla, that we love, that I love, even more, Layla". Strong melodic sensibility to this one as well. Not as good as the others. 6/10   Afrique Victime - title track. "Africa is the victim of so many crimes; if we stay silent it'll be the end of us", starts the song. It sounds like a sermon delivered on the top of a mountain. The song mentions Mandela and Gaddafi. It asks who is Africa entrusted to now? This is the best song on the record from a commercial standpoint. Everything is tight on this, and the production on this track is the best on the record. The guitar goes off at 4 minutes. It's the best guitar interlude on the record. It speeds up. The guitar sounds like the guy from Police Academy that mimics the guitar with a microphone. It's coming from another dimension. The drums get faster and faster as the track goes on. This is straight-up Maggot Brain territory guitar-wise. 7/10   Bismilahi Atagah - This one is about God. That everything in life is done with God's will. Basically, to put God first. Another pleasant track that just floats along. The last sounds of the record are the sounds of someone walking away 6/10   Conclusion   Overall I enjoyed the record. The instrumentation and scales were not something I commonly experienced listening to mostly Western music. The standout track for me was Chismitten because it had that 70's Santana vibe. The outro specifically appealed to me. I thought the record started much stronger than it ended. Some tracks were pure filler and should've been removed. Overall it was an enjoyable listen. You should check out Bombino's Nomad album if you like this album. My favourite track is Mahegagh (What Shall I Do), although it's not on that album. Both Bombino and Mdou Moctar come from Niger, Africa.     Afrique Victime by Mdou Moctar - 7/10
    • Sorry Harry , I think you are looking for the Blue Moon website.
    • Sure I saw it mentioned that he picked up 2 yellows in the group games and got banned.
    • Suspended  2 yellows in the group stages
    • That's a compelling point, but I'd say we're going away from workmanlike now in midfield and it's one of the reasons we're scoring more goals. But it does seem that if we can get the balance slightly better, we'll have the best of both worlds and we are missing just a little solidity and athleticism. Whether Tchouameni could do the job in our tactics playing with Fabinho, while we keep an attacking threat in midfield, I really don't know. Fabinho and Tchouameni would be quite defensive.
