    Possible postponement

    Public safety will be the criteria used to decide if the match goes ahead.

    Norwich 0-9 Liverpool

    Looking at the forecast for match time, I think there is a fair chance it will be postponed.
  3. Best we can ever hope for as a City fan these days is an FA Cup win. Its the one thing i want to see before i pop off this mortal coil. Been two two FA Cup semis and we didn't really turn up in either. My poor Dad ( now sadly no longer with us) went to all three we have played in.

    Tonights relegation games

    Unless we win 7 games it doesn't really matter what anyone else does.

    Norwich vs Bournemouth match thread

    I often wonder what does make some people actually smile and enjoy football. We won in a game we desperately needed to win. Rather that than another top performance but a defeat. Imagine the pressure on Bournemouth now.
  6. Even teams like Spurs are now looking to loan players to avoid FFP rules. Eventually the money bubble will burst and then the **** really will hit the fan for many clubs.
  7. Pisswich up ****creek again. The tax man wants his money. https://www.eadt.co.uk/sport/itfc-winding-up-order-made-in-error-1-6471561
  8. Apparently Man City has asked if they can declare at half time.

    Match thread v Man Utd.

    I suspect it’s defensive midfield where we are lacking defensively, not the defenders themselves.

    Match thread v Man Utd.

    Whilst I understand everyone wants to see City play at the highest level, it has to be said that many of the so called big clubs, the support of their team on the pitch is awful. The huge sums of money has actually taken the heart out of many of these clubs. Today was probably the biggest example of that.

    Match thread v Man Utd.

    I’d still like to see us try Godfrey in DCM. Tettey’s legs are giving up.

    Exeter City 2-1 Binners

    Agent Lambert doing a cracking job and signed up for the next half decade. The National League beckons.

    Player of the (half) Season

    I don't think you can underestimate Tetty's influence over the last couple of months. McLean also has been a consistent performer.
  14. Now run the blue line up to the Spurs players right hand. Why was that not considered his furthermost point forward because if you do that Teemu is definitely onside.

    Souness on VAR/offside

    Just do away with the offside rule altogether. It stifles creative football anyway.

    Liverpool VAR

    What no one can deny or disagree on is that VAR is killing the most fundamental reason any of us go to a match or watch a match...and that is the spontaneous joy and celebration of seeing your team score a goal. That is gone under the current system and without that, most of us would eventually stop going to football matches.
  17. Rafa likely to get the nod there. Villa fans want Smith sacked too.

    Ricardo's report v Spurs

    Ricardo has hit the nail on the head- supporters of all teams can no longer spontaneously celebrate any goal. That will kill the game of any enjoyment.

    Grant Hanley

    We no longer look as vulnerable at corners since he returned. He's not frightened to stick his head in where it might get thumped.

    Great goal, total disgrace. I'm done.

    If that were a goal in the last minute of the last game of the season and it kept us up but was chalked out by VAR, I wonder how long before someone tests its validity in a court of law with so much money resting on everything . Football is a sport, not something to be judged on a fecking computer screen by a no name based in a London studio.
  21. Hanley certainly improves our defending on set pieces. He's not afraid to attack the ball regardless of who is around him.
  22. There is a world of difference between being anti-semitic and being anti-Israeli government policy on Palestine.
  23. Extremely frustrating afternoon but at least we have not spent £120 million like Villa have and play the ****e football they do. I'm pretty certain they will be playing Championship football next season too.
  24. Racsim is society's problem, not footballs. When you have a PM who has made racist remarks and then gets re-elected with a near landslide, then it strikes me that those up high are quite happy to condone that sort of language and behaviour as its a vote winner. then you have the President of the USA making even worse racist statements...well what do you expect?

    Don't get disheartened.

    Wealthy owners can no longer fund clubs under FFP rules, wealthy companies can via sponsorship. Regardless of who owns the club, we would still have a finite amount of money we can spend on players as a result of the size of the club. Premier League football is no longer primarily a sport anymore, its a multinational business empire. Look at Liverpool playing pointless exhibition matches the other side of Europe to keep the TV companies happy.
