  1. I wouldn't be surprised at all if the media had been barred from writing about the FFP 'allegations'. There's a lot of stuff that the media can't print for similar reasons. Now that there is a possibility of a charge and ban the papers can report that factually. Like you said, the leaked emails clearly reveal City's mindset when it comes to any off field challenge - we have the cash to make you suffer in court for years and years, basically we can bankrupt you. Do you dare take us on? They're a state funded club and how they have arrived at where they are is totally relevant in the context of football history. Their absolute domination domestically this year (and almost last year) is a direct result of their state funded investment in their players and bringing in the best managers who have access to unlimited resources. There is no question about it. It is right that this is investigated and basically questioned in terms of is this a 'fair' way to bankroll success and do we want this to be a model for the future? Is this going to make football more exciting or is this going to lead to a hollow soulless sport where only a few clubs dominate year on year? Whether the footballing powers that be (and media) have the courage to actually challenge this remains to be seen, but I expect there a number of squeaky bums when those City emails are received at the various HQs. I hope we can challenge them again next season and push on to win it, but it's going to be a gruelling season especially when a number of teams now in the PL accept defeat before the game starts as evidenced when they don't even register corners/shots on target at their home games against them! Regardless, we have been incredible this season, and to a large extent, last season too. The football, the passion, the team have been a revelation and I have enjoyed every minute of it. Klopp brings joy to the sport and has built this team up over a number of seasons, bringing in youth and a fair play philosophy which encourages a special enjoyment in the game and how it is played on the pitch. It's no coincicdence, although perhaps a little ironic given the bigger picture, that we have topped the fair play league for the past three seasons.

    Far too easy for them and even if they were finding it a tad more competitive than expected, look at that bench. With their unlimited resources it's looking bleak for English football competitiveness for the moment. It's going to get boring very quickly unless we can break this monopoly.

    Jordan henderson: Captain

    He's been playing really well the last few games, putting himself about, making passes, making runs, looking like more of an all action midfielder, possibly helped by the fact we have Fabinho playing in that holding role and bossing games. Hendo's form has been reminding me of 2014 when he played well and we last almost won it. Remeber he missed crucial final games and felt at the time we missed his presence.

    For what it's worth (not much) I had a similar dream but woke up before the end. City were losing then equalised whilst we were winning fairly comfortaby (2-0 I think). It felt like it was going to happen...then I woke up too... Brighton were decent at home earlier in the season, but really not expecting City to do anything other than win especially given their recent form. Whatever though, we've had a fantastic season and we've pushed them all the way. Hopefully we can put on a performance today and enjoy the game.

    Highly unlikely we're going to have another season like this with this number of points with one defeat only, but even if we did, looking like City are looking at around 95-100 points a season until someone gets bored. It's just the way it is and in football you never now, sometimes the unexpected happens. Even so I want to win something again and perhaps we should take at least one of the cups more seriously next season.

    That was VVD taking control and telling Shaq to take the free kick...

    We've had enough chances to get a result here, as someone said, no composure unfortunately.

    Suarez burning all his bridges tonight. Hate playing teams like this, rolling over, making a meal of every bit of contact, continuously trying to influence the ref at every opportunity.

    Not really been expecting City to drop points, they have too large a squad and they don't even have the CL to distract them. Football in this country (and elsewhere) has clearly changed with the influx of literally billions to build a team and hire one of the best managers to coach that team (one who is experienced at managing the best players). It's not going to change because noone seems to care enough about this huge financial discrepancy for some reason. This season it feels like a lot of neutrals want City to win the title basically out of spite for us. Of course if it were their team who were having their best ever season it would be a different story and they'd be crying foul play. It's clearly not fair (financially) and it doesn't even feel like 'sport' to me sometimes anymore. City will potentially dominate English football for years whilst they are the publicity vessel for rich sheikhs and their kingdoms. It WILL make the game boring and it will become a turn off for a lot of fans. When you see a number of teams at HOME not registering a shot on target or a corner in what's supposed to be the most competitive and exciting league in the world, you know there is something very wrong with the game here.

    Horrific. I have spent a little time in Sri Lanka and they were some of the nicest and most hospitable people I have ever met. It's just so sad that this happens in today's world.

    Exactly that! I can't believe I'm hearing it, but maybe it's a fear that if we do win the league we'll have the team and the manager who could go on to win it a number of times.

    I'm not pinning any hopes on the Mancs, they're not playing particularly well and I think that their fans would prefer City to win this over us. I have the unfortunate 'pleasure' to work with a number of them and to a man they'd prefer to lose to City on Wednesday and drop into the Europa than beat them and possibly hand us the chance to win the league. There is absolutely no doubt in their minds. So in spite of them being their city rivals, in spite of City being financially doped up cheats, their vitriol for, and rivalry with, us transcends all of that. If what I hear them say is typcial of their wider fan base then the atmosphere in that stadium on Wednesday will not be a typical derby one and I wonder just how much the players will want it. Like some others here any hopes we have of City losing points will be against lesser teams who hopefully will be playing for pride rather than thinking about their summer holidays! We just have to look after our own business. If City drop points, then great, but if not, then we'll set records for a second place finishing team in the league that may possibly never be broken!

    Deeney and Deulofeu on the bench amongst others. Absolute fucking disgrace.
