Under the moon was class years ago with Danny Kelly.

Leaving aside for a second the other stuff about them as a club and how it got assembled, City did incredibly as a squad of players to chase us down then carry on that run of endless wins under immense pressure to take the title. Fair play for that. Just about everyone associated with the sports side of the club congratulated them and gave credit where it was due.

 

It’s just too bad that what we took from the experience, and will be channeling into this season’s league campaign, is not dissimilar to our reaction to losing in Kiev by immediately focusing on winning it the next season. Maturation. They didn’t reel this season’s Liverpool side in from 10 points because this one is already a better side than that, in much the same way last season’s was than the previous year.

Aye, United losing out to Leeds having thought they were finally ending their own drought, before winning it the next year had some parallels in terms of pain overcome.

 

Obviously any similarities end with them having Aston fucking Villa and Norwich as competitors, rather than Galactic Empire FC.

A lot of talk that City’s second team would finish top four, now one game does not a season make but their first team just lost to a Norwich side missing eight players.

I'm amused by the fact that they have a 4,250 mile round trip before a Saturday match against a Watford side who must fancy themselves a bit after the Arsenal game.

Indeed. City's players knew they had to win that game at the etihad to be able to retain the title. All their players said so after the game and yes, if they had drawn they'd have said the same thing.

 

Im firmly of the opinion we didnt think the same focused way. But the team is now very muched more focused. I think if the team were in the same position now, we'd have shut up shop and played out the draw instead of taking the game to them and conceeding. They'll use that experience from last season.

If Fernandinho plays centre back he might not keep getting away with so many snide tactical fouls. Especially in the 18 yard box.

And VAR is sure to pick up all his cynical fouls. Oh, hang on...

There’s an article by Daniel Taylor in the Grun accusing Guardiola of refusing to splash the cash over the summer and stockpile centerhalfs in the way they stockpile wings back and midfield skillknomes. Really, Daniel?

 

They spent the better part of £140m, like they do all the fucking time, and you’re accusing them of being prudent?

 

FUCK.ING.HELL

The man city game has been pushed back a day, jammy cunts probably paid off the FA so they could get an extra days rest after the champions league fixtures.
