Lads. And ladies. Don't do it to yourselves. It's been a magnificent season and a joyous ride whatever happens. We've lost this season, but we'll be back for another go next season. That's all that really matters.

 

And we have a small matter of two finals to enjoy. Fuck everyone else, supporting this club is ace, and a real privilege.

It’s irreverent.  All this started with Chelsea and some of you can definitely say you wanted Liverpool to lose a league game to them to stop united winning a title  (The one were Gerrard obliged)

 

How many celebrated that Aguero goal?

 

It might be convenient to pretend it started five years ago but nope.

Id argue had it been any other side but Utd then the Aguero goal wouldnt have been celebrated like it was.

 

United had built a dynasty based on some great players but a with a massive amount of favourable refs (Webb) and opposition mangers that publicly fawned over ferguson virtually gifting them 3 points- Hughes/Bruce/|Robson/Allardyce/McCarthy/Hodgson/Pulis.

 

It was seeing them getting their comeuppance after so long.

 

Its not anything like us being denied

The ref decisions, fuck me it's like watching an openly-fixed game where the commentators are in on it. I mean, even then, another pull back from a City player against Hwang on the break, not even a free kick.  You can't compete against this nonsense.

Ha ha, even then, unlike earlier in the game when the lino flagged for Jimenez being offside on the break (he wasn't), he now decides to leave his flag down when City go through, despite the City player being 2 yards off.

Ultimately it was that farcical period of the season with covid disruptions that proven costly. City were probably the only team unaffected...must've just carried on regardless of positive cases

Werent they only impacted for the FA Cup game against Swindon ? I remember some wankfest about 20 staff and players being out and what sort of team would play and they ended up with pretty much a first team anyway ?

It’s perverse to not win the league with 92 and 97 points. 
 

And it sucks arse that we’ve had one of our best ever teams and managers while we’re having to compete with a bunch of cheats and, sadly, another very good manager. But, leagues are won and lost by a number of factors. Having to finish above cheats who will rack up 90 off points in 9 seasons out of 10 is the new norm now. And, while our points tally would win us leagues most other times, our draws (along with the cheating) are a big factor in why we’ll probably just fall short. If we turn just two of the shitty draws like Brighton, Brentford or Chelsea into wins then we win the league. 
 

The danger is of the players getting disillusioned. Getting all these points and probably not winning the league might make them think “what’s the fucking point?” or it could motivate them. I think bouncing back from it once or twice is possible. But, after that? I can imagine it’d start to smart a bit. 
 

For next season, I think City will be even harder to finish ahead of, sadly. Other teams will be better. But, Haaland won’t be their only business. They’ll have TV money, prize money, a decent wedge of Champions League money and they’ll probably get rid of players like Jesus and Sterling which will allow them to bring in another 2 or 3 top players. That’s without the cooked books. 
 

It does beg the question of when the fans click on and see sense, recognising that having a team winning by 5 or 6 goals every week (could’ve been 10 tonight) isn’t really preferable to that team also being the one that stops us winning things. The Premier League is on the verge of being a glorified SPL.

No need to risk any of the key players against Southampton or Wolves now. Can't lose any of them like Fabinho the other night. 

 

Real will pretty much have the rest of the month off until the final.

Agreed, it would just be asking for trouble - from goalkeeper to forwards, the risk is wholly unnecessary.

    • See him for the third goal the other day? Absolute discraceful defending from a centrehalf.   If that was big Nat, the ball would've been headed clear and Ben Mee would still be in hospital.
    • Wonder if they’ll fuck him off now with all this furore?
          When I woke up the Monday after watching England win the European Championship on July 31, everything felt different. 
        As a woman working in football, I truly believed what Sarina Wiegman and her swashbuckling team of winners had achieved at Wembley was going to help me on a deeply personal level.    Those women, led by captain Leah Williamson, broke into the wider public consciousness this summer. They all became household names, rightfully adored by a nation. And they did not take this step alone. They took along every woman involved in the game, and every single girl or woman dreaming of a future in it.    That is how it felt. It was seismic.   It also made me feel that talking and writing about football for a living would become even easier for me and other women — something I could do with renewed confidence and purpose. The Lionesses made me feel like I truly belonged in an industry I have already been working in for four years.   Their victory made me hopeful that the noisy minority who love to loathe women’s football — not to mention women working in football full stop — might just decide to give their thumbs a rest from all that online trolling. Maybe, just maybe, they had grown to respect and admire these powerful women for the incredible role models they are.   Then came comments by Graeme Souness on Sky Sports on Sunday night. Just two weeks after England’s success, they felt like a complete regression, like a step back into the recent past.   I was dismayed listening to Souness use cliched phrases such as “boys will be boys” when talking about a clash between Thomas Tuchel and Antonio Conte during Chelsea’s 2-2 draw with Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge. Calling the sport “a man’s game again” while sitting directly next to Karen Carney — a former professional who during her career featured 144 times for England — did not sit right with me.   Let’s be clear: I do not know what Souness truly makes of the women’s game. And people may think I have missed the point here because Souness was commenting on a men’s match. True. He was.   People may also think I have misunderstood what he meant by “a man’s game” and instead argue that he was simply marvelling at the free-flowing nature of the match and admiring some decidedly old-school tackles. Again: he was.   But hearing the modern game spoken about in this way made me feel uncomfortable. It made European champion Bethany England and former England international Eniola Aluko feel the same.   Bethany England called for this kind of language to “get in the bin”, while Aluko poignantly reminded us that “football is football” regardless of gender.       Had these comments been made last season, they may have gone unchallenged or even unnoticed. But this should not be the case in this country in 2022, the year England Women became European champions.   Responding to the escalating row, Souness doubled down, saying he did not “regret a word of it”. He added: “The referees have such a major part to play in the success of the Premier League because we were fast becoming like other leagues where the ref was blowing the whistle all the time, the game didn’t flow, and it just wasn’t a very good watch.   “And I think yesterday I said, ‘We’ve got our game back’. That is the kind of football I remember playing and our league will be better for it. I enjoyed two games of football yesterday where men were playing men, and they got about themselves at times. They were falling out with each other.”   This summer gave women such as England and Aluko — not to mention myself and some of you reading — an even bigger platform, and more courage to challenge. So, here we are.   Euro 2022 has driven us even closer to the equality, fairness and respect women have been fighting for in this sport and in society for decades.   Souness’s comments — even if he did not necessarily intend for them to — dulled my post-Euros glow but in a way, I am glad because I now realise our work isn’t finished. We cannot rest on our laurels or on the medals England fought so hard to win. Instead, we need to keep on evolving and educating.   Women belong here and anything that makes them feel otherwise does not.   Sky Sports has been contacted for comment.
    • He's a publicity seeking cunt. Klopp should have nutted him. So should Tuchel and Conte yesterday. 
    • It's the first time I've known in my lifetime where things no longer function.   A lot of people can't get dentists, it's incredibly difficult to get a GP appointment, the police have been shit for years.    Most of the time you're oblivious until you need it, then realize there's nobody on the end of the phone any more.
    • Fingers crossed. I might then start watching the post match blah blah
