I think it's safe to say with 49 points from 17, City have one hand on the league title. Chelsea had seven points fewer in Mourinho's record breaking first season after 17 played, and I can't anticipate a Devon Loch-style collapse from here on in. City will lose in the league at some point, but w...

Ok this may sound ludicrous, but Guardiola's still a young guy and he's got no affinity to City or Manchester. By all accounts he expressed an admiration for United before he came to City and he must have noticed during his time in Mcr that United is a far bigger club, despite City being superior...

2017 has been a pretty good year for gaming. Probably the best year since 2008 for me. We had a good first few months to the year with Zelda, Yakuza Zero, Horizon, Nioh, Nier, Persona 5, RE 7 and few others that I cannot be arsed naming. We had Mario Odyssey, Destiny 2, Wolfenstein, Evil Within 2...

From kick off it seems like they're under instruction not to get in behind the fullbacks. Jose probably sees it as a defensive vulnerability, but it makes it a lot easier for the opposition to cage us in when our wingers are in a wingback position and Lukaku is against 2 cbs on his own. It comple...

I'm disgusted by Jose's tactical in first half that we just conceded more possession to City which means more possession more they take set pieces. When we have a ball, what we do?

Today was a bad loss to digest and probably the loss that kills our title hopes (if there were any). I know still more than 20 games are to be played in the league but I cannot see us cathing city. Fair play to city and pep. However, I strongly believe all is not lost for us this season in...

Mourinho has always been about safety first in big games and getting the points in smaller games (away from the top 6), but with Pep around it seems like this approach may become outdated. We all saw the safety first tactics first hand in LVGs first season when we went to the Bridge and lost 1-0...

We are watching our neighbours building a team that is laughing all the way to the title. The board needs to unreservedly invest in Jose's vision. Ask him what he needs and give it to him. If Jose is supposed to play beautiful attacking football, supply him with the talent required.

Pathetic “football”. Playing at home and all you can do is lump it aimlessly forward 40 yards every time you get the ball.
