Man City - the new bitters?

To me it stinks of his usual trick, him being a sore loser and all that. He probably realises that winning the Pl is a huge ask now and probably way beyond his managerial capabilities with the defenders at his disposal. He also realises that they are just not good enough to win the CL as when they meet a team who are very good and well organised he'll get dumped out over two legs because they can't keep a clean sheet at home. 

Agreed. Can't see them winning the CL but remember Chelsea lifting the trophy a few years back after being absolute dogshit in the knockout stages .

I suppose anything can happen, but Chelsea achieved that CL victory on the back of dogged defending.

Hahaha, they should send Gary a BBC mug with a sad looking Pep photo on it.

City had a decent defence and a great striker in Drogba. At this stage, City have neither.

You mean the Abu Dhabi mob, right? The Qatari mob have already spent £200m on Neymar and more than £150m on Mbappe.

Do I? I guess so. I've lost track at this stage.

I am waiting to hear from our spiritual leader;

 Raheem Sterling: Manchester City and England star calls for nine-point deduction for racist chanting

 

 

What does Raheem Sterling think should happen?

He doesn't think fines for clubs where racist chanting happens is going far enough.

He wants clubs to be forced play three games behind closed doors and lose nine points for racist abuse: "It sounds harsh but which fan will risk racist behaviour if it might relegate their team or ruin their title bid?"

Sterling also wants to see more Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic (BAME) people in charge of clubs and governing bodies.

It's after players in England and Wales came off social media for 24 hours on Friday.

The protest was organised by the Professional Footballers' Association calling for "stronger action to be taken by social networks and footballing authorities in response to racist abuse both on and off the pitch".

I thought all their home games were played behind closed doors.

The kip of Pep. Deserves sacking for that interview alone, the owners should be furious after the investment they have backed him with.

 

Sounds like he’s laying the path for his exit, he’s rarely had to compete anywhere before and he clearly can’t handle it.

Imagine having that quim as your fearless leader - kinell.

 

The reality is both Klopp and he have built teams in their likeness.

One has players like Sterling, Bernardo, Silva and Kyle Walker.

The other has Mentality Monsters.

Just saw an interesting stat: Mahrez has contributed to more goals (10) this season in the league than Sterling (9), despite the former having played 653 less minutes.

 

Maybe Pep should focus on managing his squad better and starting the players who are performing better instead of saying his squad can't compete and that there is a conspiracy against his club.

Hasn’t helped himself Guardiola. At the same time as suffering defensive injuries he’s made his midfield more porous by moving the ceaseless Bernardo out of the middle where he played last season and also introducing Rodri. De Bruyne is a great midfielder in isolation but he’s not half slow; when you’ve got him, final-season David Silva and first-season Rodri protecting a makeshift defence you’re asking for trouble

I can't figure out why he's insisting on playing Fernandinho at the back, he's a brilliant DM and last season they only seemed to drop points in games he was missing, he was one of the biggest reasons they won the league, his tactical fouls near the halfway line are invaluable.

they couldn't afford a replacement centre-back for Kompany. tough times for them. maybe they might have to sell to buy like us soon?

Perhaps he threw United in there, just in terms of total spending.

 

But then he has to deal with the fact that Klopp has surpassed him with a net spend lower than what he's spent on his back-up right backs.

 

As for teams and hatred, Chelsea and their fanbase, particularly under Mourinho, were just as detestable. Complete shower of cunts, from top to bottom. Not a single redeeming virtue I can recall.

As good as Pep is, we would be a top 4 pl team rather than the best club side in the world, if he had taken over in 2015.

 

Jurgen is on a different level as a manager and a human being.

 

You hear the way he talks up lads going through a rough patch like Keita and the way he hugs the young players like Hoever, Curtis Jones and Kelleher. He loves making players better and doesn't bitch when he is dealt a bad hand.

 

If City drop points in their next two games, Pep should blood a few of their young players and try and build something for next season. Instead, he will play the poor mouth and possibly depart for a mega club. Laughable from the most lauded manager in the world.

I'd love to see an Amazon Prime series about this season. Bet he's lost the plot with loads of them behind the scenes and has had tons of bitch fits.

Klopp and Pep are completely different. Pep makes great teams unbeatable for a short term period and then he leaves. Klopp can build a juggernaut over an extended period of time. Both great at what they do but Klopp is undoubtedly the better fit for us. 

 

I think the thing with Pep though is that he's too focused on tactics. It's gone wrong multiple times for him in the Champions League and I think he's in his own head. Because to win the Champions League against all these great European sides, a lot of it is about mental fortitude and getting through difficult periods in matches. With Pep, when someone figures him out tactically, his teams can't stop the bleeding. Klopp seems more tuned into the mental aspect and fighting for results.

But to be fair Sterling has been busy being the greatest player in the history of the galaxy

    • Nice read that,Another ex.player in the Liverpool F.C.extended family.
    • David Ngog has recalled his greatest moment in a Liverpool shirt after Mo Salah’s strike on the weekend against Man United brought back some fond personal memories.

      The Frenchman’s stint on Merseyside is not what you would call prolific or particularly memorable by any means, but one moment clearly stands out above all others.

      The late substitute wrapped up victory against Liverpool’s arch rivals when he was put through on goal by Lucas Leiva and side footed it past Edwin Van Der Sar in the United goal.

      The jubilant crowd reaction after sealing a victory following a poor run of form was matched by the players with goalkeeper Pepe Reina running the length of the pitch to jump into the arms of the striker.

      A similar reaction took place on Sunday with Allison and Salah embracing and Ngog certainly noticed the parallels as he told the Official site.      

      “It's unbelievable how close it is.

      “It's different play of course – he has a longer run and he read it well against the defender. 

      “But that was in the last minute, against Man United, it brings back memories.

      “ I was at home but I was with my family as well. 

      I saw the two goals and I was happy because it's Liverpool and it's really important this season.   "It was exciting. To be honest, at that time I was just watching, not thinking about the goal before. 

      "But when I saw the replay and saw it was similar – and the celebration, of course, with Alisson running. It was really, really funny to watch."

      Ngog who is still just 30yo, has made many stops in his football career since leaving the Reds and English Football, taking him far and wide to Greece, France, Scotland and currently in Hungary.

      But it is the moment in October of 2009 which he recalls with pride.   “I think it was one of my great memories when I was in Liverpool.

      "Especially the celebration with Pepe, who was a great teammate, a great player, goalkeeper and a great guy.

      Ngog said that the celebration that took place was a pure spur of the moment thing that Football often delivers.

      “It was a surprise for me to see Pepe when I turned back to celebrate! Afterwards, it was just joy and you want to share with the fans and everybody.   "It was a great memory. 

      “The celebration is one of the best and it's just improvisation. 

      “You don't really prepare for it, it just happens in the moment."

      Despite being well removed from playing for the club, he still holds the Reds very closely to his heart.   And just like any fan, he hopes they go one step further this season.

      “They're in the best position possible.

      “I think Jürgen Klopp did a great job in getting everyone involved. 

      “They play with a lot of energy and it's just great to watch.   "I really hope – and I think – they will succeed this season."

      While Ngog struggled for consistent minutes, he views his time at the club where he made 94 appearances and scored 19 goals in an extremely positive light.

      "I was in at a young age and had plenty to prove.

      "I was surrounded by great players with great experience and I think I learned a lot from it. 

      "For me, it's all good memories.   "Of course you always want to do more but for me at that age it was a good achievement for me in my life and my career."
