Featured: That was the Week that Was (Dec 27-31 2021)

Recommended Posts



Monday Dec 27:


Guardiola insists fans should wear masks at all times in the stadium. I don’t have any issue with the message (I’ve worn a mask for the entirety of the last two home games) but I sure as hell have a problem with the messenger. When your squad are fully vaccinated then maybe you’re in a position to comment on what the rest of us should do. But he said a couple of weeks ago that some of his players aren’t. They shouldn’t allowed in the stadium then. If we have to have proof of our vaccination status to attend games how come players don’t?


His team were 4-0 up after 25 minutes against Leicester yesterday. One of those was a farcical penalty awarded by VAR. Who was the VAR? Paul Tierney. Who was the on field ref? Chris Kavanagh. Two Manchester refs. You couldn’t make this shit up. Last week, when it was us, the bar for how much contact constitutes a penalty kick was so high that Peter Crouch couldn’t reach it. Now, when it’s City, it’s so low that even Bernardo Silva can’t walk under it.


It ended up 6-3 and Leicester actually got within a goal of them at one stage, but it’s pretty fucking galling how they’re getting to play against all these weakened opponents and they’ve wiped out our goal difference advantage in about a week. We were nine goals better than them before they played Leeds. 


Now it’s just a case of us having to keep winning games just to stay with them until they drop points again, which they will. People need to remember that they lost at home to Palace and drew 0-0 with Southampton. They aren’t unstoppable but they are really good front runners. The key to overcoming them is to stay with them when they have these big winning runs. That’s what we have to do, starting with tomorrow night’s game at Leicester. There’s a chance there to not only win, but also win handsomely and claw back some of the damage that’s been done to our goal difference.


Leicester will be weakened further tomorrow night as many of their regular starters featured at the Etihad today and will be knackered. They’ve got a few to come back in, but we’ll be full strength and coming off six days rest. Let’s go and fuck them all over the place like we did two years ago when we came back from the World Club Cup. That was one of our best performances under Klopp, so let’s do that again.


Staying with Leicester, Ricardo says he’s lucky his season wasn’t needed by that Tyler Morton challenge last week. He fractured his tibia and will miss 6-8 weeks. It was a really bad one and Tyler is lucky there is no VAR in the cup or he’d have seen red and we’d be out. Needs to learn from that.

The people who should have took the fight to city where the likes of fat Sam, warlock, Hodgson etc. But they all lack city's arse.

Football is just getting more depressing. I never gave city's covid figures a thought but got to agree it doesn't sit right.

Friends was never my thing. Just couldn’t get any of the 90s American sitcoms in my teens. Friends in particular felt hokey, lame and for girls.
