    Not sure whether Bobby goes or stays. My point is if we can get a big fee for Mane it may be time to cash in. All 3 need replacing in the next few years so it might be wise to at least get a decent fee for one of them. Mo is still performing so I'd keep him around and Bobby hasn't been good enough for 2 seasons to command any sort of fee. Plus there's always a risk his dip in form may be permanent.

    I know it's harsh because I love the guy but I'd cash in on Mane this summer while he's got some value left. Obviously providing we could use the money to help bring in a suitable alternative. The attack desperately needs freshening up. I wouldn't want to lose Mo and we ain't getting much for Bobby.

    I'd go Kane too for POTY but Gundogen may be a late contender the way he is going.

    It's frightening how bad we are. I've never known a drop off like it. If the season started at Christmas we'd be in a relegation fight. On the plus side you must be close to being able to use copy and paste for these home games now Dave.

    We've taken 9 points from the last 27. Leicester must have the same feeling when they look at the table and think how are they only 3 points behind us.

    I like Thiago, he definitely has a lot to offer but he hasn't had the impact I'd hoped for but that's probably on me for expecting some sort of midfield messiah to instantly improve us. He's prone to diving in and giving away silly free kicks too which is frustrating. Although in his defence he probably watches the opposition and thinks its fine. It's like we are playing with one of those petty whistle happy European refs every game at the moment where you're urging the players to adapt and stay on their feet. The opposition have got an old fashioned ale house fucker who lets everything go only its the same fella.

    I think it was Connelly. Not 100% though but I know Nico committed the foul. Well the 1st pen they had anyway, the 2nd was obviously Robbo on Welbeck.
  8. The keyboard warriors slagging players off really does my head in too. It is so idiotic to me that sometimes I wonder if they aren't real accounts and are rival fans acting like pricks to give our fans a bad name and unsettle players. Unfortunately that probably isn't the case and presumably other clubs suffer it too, especially the bigger clubs with more fans. One thing social media has highlighted is that there is a lot more twats in the world than I'd ever have imagined.

    I'm not one for conspiracies but there's something corrupt as fuck about the officiating this season. It's fucking awful without corruption but with VAR available you just can't legislate for some of the inconsistencies eg the term 'Clear and obvious' being thrown around when it suits yet some decisions get scrutinised to the nth degree and get overturned. Also, it was clever to be fair, but Hendo was clearly pushed backwards as they took the free kick thus playing Ings onside. It wasn't even mentioned on the TV (unless I missed it) but that's a really tight call if he's not shoved back.

    Totally agree VAR is ruining the game. Last season I was 50:50 as I assumed they'd fine tune it but they clearly won't. On Saturday my 2 year old was messing about so I looked away from the screen for a second as Mane headed in so I allowed myself to celebrate wildly which I don't usually do these days. I soon realised why and it bloody hurt. From that moment I just knew we'd concede and sure enough we did. The problem is I was annoyed with myself for celebrating like I did without seeing the goal so I'll be even more cautious next time. The game is fucked if you take away the emotion of scoring a goal. It's what sets football apart from other sports where the are more 'scores' because a goal means more. It's why we tolerate nil nils.

    Great report as ever. I was irrationally annoyed with the fact someone (Shaq ideally) didn't have a blast with the last kick of the game. Prob too far out to expect anything but it was pissing down at that point so may have been spilled by the keeper or deflected. Certainly worth a go more than the pitiful effort that we produced.

    Wasn't Sakho the only man (At least at one point) you ever gave a 10 to in the ESPN match ratings? Gambling occasionally pays off I guess.
  14. I always thought he was a complete bellend but I've listened to him on both Carra's podcast and Quickly Kevin (Highly recommend to anybody over 30) recently and he comes across as a totally decent guy. Now I just think of him as a Tim Nice but Dim sort of figure.
  15. “If we focus on Liverpool too much, we are wrong. “We would be better looking at ourselves and play as we did at Atletico under Simeone, game by game. For him to have to mention his previous manager suggests even their players are aware of Guardiola's obsession with us. Must be a bit demoralising to come in having fought back to win from behind and instead of focusing on their achievement he's sulking about our own come back.
