City look like a team that has had eight days of rest. They're running rings around Chelsea. Fair play to the authorities for finding fresh new ways to give the oil cheats an unfair advantage.

An absolute disgrace it is then having a mid winter break. They should be made to play their game in hand against the bitters 2 days before another game or 2 days after

It is but this is  the serial rule-breaking with no repercussions Man City.

Same with Spurs and West Ham and these.

 

Wishy washy statements like 'club is disappointed' but no real action - these have benefited from their players breaking rules.

 

League need to step in now and say if players are found to break whatever rules are in place that are there to help keep league going and are part of covid regs that they get 5 match bans.

 

That will bring players in line.

Yeah. Absolutely no mention of that, though. It's brilliant City! Geez, how have they done it?!

You gotta say, this is bullshit, though. City get rewarded with a rest period because their players broke protocol and the Rodri incident was a stonewaller. Somehow they've come out smelling like roses.

Yep, it was a rest period which is helping 6 of their other players get extended time off under the guise of an infectious disease.

 

And Scott Parker pulling the same trick to get his own players extended rest shows how daft the Premier League is.

City playing like an early klopp team. Sit in a bit and pounce on mistakes with pace. Something we could look to do at home a bit more and away to the dross. Any they flood runners forward

That would be totally unfair on Everton, though. And so I endorse it!

I must have watched a different game because Newcastle definitely did not play very defensive against us. Less so than they usually do, at least.

Perhaps you did.

Some awful Everton-like behaviour in this thread. "City being given a rest, their players being infected is a conspiracy, blah, blah, blah". Put away the tin foil hats guys.

 

Need I remind you theirs wasnt the first game that was postponed this season. And Fulham have also missed two games due to the same issue. Maybe, just maybe, the fact that there is a very infectious disease out there influenced the most logical decision to take.

 

They fact that we are not 6-8 points ahead of them after we kept drawing with shite teams is entirely down to us. So give the Everton-like behaviour a rest, eh?

As corrupt as it’s been over City’s unscheduled mid season break not a word of criticism about how out of his depth fat Frank is from either Tyler or Neville...I seem to remember them tripping over themselves to slag off Sarri

The sheer cluelessness of Chelsea has to be down to one man being promoted beyond his competence. City haven't broken a sweat, despite the rumour that they're riddled with a virus.

Lampard is despised at West Ham.  I’d be surprised if he worked in the premier league again after he gets sacked from here.  

Yeah, cant see him turning up there. He might get the Palace job if he's lucky. Or maybe he could try the Championship again?

The outbreak was their own fault and they had plenty of players to dress. They had like 5 cases. No conspiracy here, it's lazy by you to say people think that's what it is by the way, it's just that it's absolutely absurd that the behaviour of their players has ended up rewarding them.

Also, we had a load of rest before the West Brom game and that did us the world of good...

 

 

 

But with Solksaer's job safe for now, we can resume hoping that Chelsea don't sack Lampard.

But I don't get what you're on about here - are you saying they were able to take a covid hit (you know, kind of quietly let it happen) and thus get a game off, and then still win their next game because they have a big squad?

How have they ended up being rewarded

By beating a shit Chelsea?
