The scenes in the tunnel and elsewhere from the Atletico v city game are both funny as fuck while at the same time, disturbing.

 

I really dont get why people think Simone is a great \ good \ better manager. He plays anti football and is all about aggression. If he rocks up in the PL with any club, those games will be like fucking battle fields.

I'd be surprised if Pep risks them on Saturday. His focus will be firmly on the other two trophies. 


It’s not as if they don’t have quality replacements either. 
 

From the sides on Sunday, swap De Bruyne out for Gündoğan and Walker for Zivchenko / Ake / Dias and the drop off isn’t that great.

 

I would say though, I’ve always felt Gündoğan struggles with the pace of the game against us and they’ll miss Walker’s recovery pace as well. 
 

Whoever plays, we’ll need a very, very good performance to win.

I think those changes would help more than hinder us. Hopefully this time we are going to be ready for their high pressure start.

I'd imagine this has something to do with it -

I agree. I think the CL draw has worked massively in our favour for once.

 

I'd be very surprised if we don't beat them this weekend.

Atalanta v. Leipzig is great. Two very flimsy, but brave and talented teams. 


How are Nkunku and that Croatian midfielder for RBL playing?

I don’t think the issue with this is the 12:45pm kick off. The issue is one semi getting 6 days rest and the other getting 8 days rest - if they both had 7 it wouldn’t be a problem.

Nkunku's scored and been very good. Leipzig don't have a Croatian midfielder, they have the centre back, Gvardiol. 

 

The game has been open and so it's difficult for him, but he has undeniable qualities.

Yep, my bad, the Croatian midfield plays for Salzburg.

Wasn’t really sure where to put this, so here is as good as anywhere. Interesting result so far with CL slightly winning out.

I’ve seen us win 2 Champions Leagues. I’m still yet to fully see us win the Premier League.

We have a far bigger cosmopolitan fanbase now so many of them dont feel what it means to be the national champions entering and competing in the Champions League as such.

 

For me, the league title trumps the CL every day. Well, until we've won 3 to 5 more league titles anyway!

 

I think that poll is skewed though because it says whichever you want to win city wins the other. Fuck that!

 

Id be genuinely interested to know what portion of fans for clubs like Real, Bayern, Juve etc would put winning the CL ahead of their national title.

Premier League, as it should be our bread and butter.

 

Manchester City's achievements will be asterisked and/or forgotten over time. Who really cares about them? They shouldn't impact on our thinking in terms of our own honours.

Every trophy we finish runners up to City is a trophy stolen by Abu Dhabi sportswash enterprise and a league not interested in doing anything about breaking rules. Other than that the Premier league.
