    A goal from a current player and another from yet another graduate of the academy of science. The power shift is real. England is Everton. Heads are off.

    Positive Thinking

    I'm still relatively positive - obviously I'd rather be ten points clear but it is what it is. City are on a stonking good run in the league - winning their last five and nine of their last ten. To absolutely guarantee finishing ahead of us, they'll need to win their last nine games - that would translate to a 14 match winning streak and winning 18 out of 19 over the second half of the season. That's something they've managed but it was flying unchallenged out the blocks last season - they'll have to do it with tough games racking up in the CL and the FA Cup this time. I'm pretty optimistic they'll drop points at some stage, especially without Fernandinho, Laporte and De Bruyne. Of more concern is our form, but the manc and blueshite games ("form goes out the window" type games) aside, our form is reasonably OK with the only aberrations a draw in a blizzard against a side that's like kryptonite to us, and a poor draw in an away game which I'm balanced enough to say "it can happen" about. There were enough signs against Watford and Burnley to say that certainly we're still capable of flowing football, and there are players still to come back into the team. The mancs and the blueshite could quite happily reduce our games down to stopping us win the league. We'll see if Wolves, Southampton, Fulham and Huddersfield etc. have the same motivation, I guess.

    Football Hipster Behaviour

    Controversial opinions that you make out to be grounded in pure perceptiveness, but are actually blind fan loyalty - there's nothing wrong with being one-eyed and hypocritical, it's part and parcel of football fan culture and, if you ask me, one of the perks of it. But take this as a case in point: idly reading through the comments section on a Guardian article on Paul Pogba (I know, I know), and there's a circle-jerk of mancs agreeing with each other that Andrea Pirlo was overrated and inconsistent, and actually just a mainstream, inferior, "cool to like" version of... wait for it... wait... Michael. Fucking. Carrick.

    Phil Foden. I hate that little cunt more irrationally than any other player in the fucking league. Seems like because City have an arsenal of £20m+ players to call on, there's a need for them to have a few prospects built up to make it look like they aren't just a massive fucking sportswashing vanity project, so there's an immense noise around any reasonable prospect so they can tenuously link themselves to the city, and add more gloss to the "City legend": so there's apparently a glittering array of talent coming through, spearheaded by young fucking Foden, ready to create an Abu Dhabi Mancunian reich that will last 1,000 years. He's decent. Fuck off.

    ISIS - To Attack or Not?

    She needs to face some sort of accountability for providing some sort of assistance to a terrorist organisation: exactly what (if?) she contributed or how little (or much?) remorse she feels should be established in a court of law and not through some edited piece in the fucking Times. If it's the case that she was more than just a stupid kid who made a stupid mistake and was forced to make peace with her stupid decisions, then she'd be punished through the law - which I'm far more comfortable with than extra-judicial means such as death by drone strike or exile through denial of citizenship. As I've often said, abandoning "western" values when dealing with this sort of thing is a jihadi marketing department's dream, giving them a line of "their justice and equality doesn't apply to people like you so your only viable survival method is to fight." If she's showing no contrition at all and it's just a cynical act of self-interest then so be it - she probably spends longer behind bars as a result but either way her innocent child faces a (hopefully) better future. To be honest, the timing of it stinks a bit. The beloved Tory government is under intense pressure, and pieces like this are basically teeing up a smash for some cunt like May or Javid to posture to the gallery with hardline statements about how "we stand up to terrorists", "people who don't like our values should fuck off" and "Britain is never afraid to face down evil like we did in the war and that" etc., and shit like that is like catnip to Kippers and yellow vesters. Right when they need a bit of ground-level support.

    The New Cricket Thread

    Feel a bit for Jennings. I know a few people who've done stuff with the Durham setup and he's supposed to be a really sound lad, a proper county pro in the making who's dedicated to his craft, puts in plenty of hours of practice with the coaches and has a deep respect for the game. He also made plenty of time for the community stuff the club did. He's just not quite good enough though and his flaws are being ruthlessly exposed at a level that's too high for him. I've never quite understood the approach with players like him and Ballance (another sound pro high on resilience but low on ability) - to an extent I understand not just picking county punts and hoping for the best but a player without the technique for Test cricket is unlikely to suddenly develop one after a run of low scores. It's damaging for the team as well - not his fault this, but when you pick an XI of number 6's you really need the top 3 to do their job or the lineup will collapse into its foundations of sand. Pleased for Wood, anyway. He's always been good at his best - he's just lacked the fitness to be able to sustain it for more than a couple of overs. Hopefully he's turned a corner because we're in dire need of a quick bowling option outside of the "game orthodox swinger" facsimiles we're so good at.

    The thing annoying me at the moment is the "bottle" narrative surrounding us. Somehow City being able to leave Sane on the bench and only need Silva for about 12 minutes today is "bottle" - us having half our defence and midfield injured and the other half with the shits is a lack of it. They're relentless because they can call on £30m players (minimum) in every single position so they're not subject to the same laws as the rest of us. Stop making it out to be something that wasn't bought and fucking paid for by human rights abuses.

    Burnley are going to fucking hangdog their way into another year up of tugging, kicking, elbowing and spending half the game watching their keeper think about taking a goal kick. And listen to Wetherspoons drinking Brexit pundits applaud them for it. Got away with murder today - fucking horrible team.

    I've drawn the parallel with Villa a couple of times - it's not nailed on as there is still some astonishing shit in the division with more shit regularly promoted. In fairness, loads of new owners have done the same as the Mosh (including ourselves) but they usually sort things out sooner or later. The rot at the Pit seems to be systemic. All the signs are there though: √ A wealthy but not spectacularly rich owner comes in, splashes some cash thinking it's that easy to get in the CL and the abundant riches beyond - it doesn't work as this kind of budget isn't enough in itself amongst top 6 riches. √ He then tries to box clever appointing a young manager and smooth talking DoF type - this doesn't work either as it's not the quick fix you think it is. √ Results drift. √ Other clubs get their shit together. √ The costs mount. You can't spend as much the next year and you're spending money to save money. ? Owner loses interest. Other clubs get their shit together. A couple of promoted clubs are better than shit. CHAMPIONSHIP

    Perfect result for them really. You don't have to look like you're trying to lose to lose but you are losers.
