FA Cup Semi-final vs Arsenal

Postby Justified logic » Mon Mar 13, 2017 10:35 pm

The question is, if Bravo is going to be in goal is it worth trying to get a ticket?

The question is another one for me: why Claudio Bravo is so hated? I'll support him as every City player against the gooners in Wembley! #CTWD
From Torino, Italia to Manchester, Lancashire this City is always our City!

Good draw, we can beat Arse, Spuds to fluke a win over Chelsea, then we get revenge for 1981 at their new 'home' ground.

Couldn't make the league cup final last season and when i saw Willy in net, was glad i hadn't bothered. And then look what happened.

I still think Bravo needs one game to change everything. His confidence is shot, but one brilliant save at 1-0 to win a game and he could be the keeper we signed, rather than a talented outfield player in gloves. Maybe that save will come against the Tarquins

Because he has been utter utter utter shit ( Its not even a fuckign opinion , its a 100% fact) and has cost us games ffs !! and PeP includes him in the fuckign FA cup first 11 over a keeper that has excelled ( well , compared to Bravo , he has )..........that's why !

If it wasn't for ZABBA then we might have fucking lost that game due to his useless lack of actually catching the fuckign ball.

Our very real chance of winning this cup will be put in jeopardy with this out of form keeper playing for us.....end of story.

I don't think he's hated mate. I've never heard him given the Edgehill treatment as of yet. There's a few "whhhheeeeyyy" noises around the stadium when he makes a save but I've never heard him booed.

People are right to ask the question though with the amount of shots he's had at him and goals conceded this season. Do we want to win this cup?

His name has been booed, by admittedly a small number, when the teamsheets are read out.

No, it is "Is our ability to score against Arsenal (the 'weakest' opponent we could have in the semis) greater or less than the liability of having Bravo leaking shots on target?" He was beaten twice on Saturday and only saved by Zaba and then Stones on the goal-line, and the other on-target shot was straight at his body yet he failed to hold that immediately. If I'm going to pay the not insubstantial cost of going to Wembley I want to know we are at least giving ourselves the best chance of winning and Caballero is a better shot stopper and, very importantly, a proven penalty saver and gives the team the confidence to play its full game that Bravo doesn't.

I'll have your ticket if you don't want it.

Last time we were at Wembley, we had exactly the same thread about Caballero. As Uncle Manuel said after that match, "I'd rather lose the cup final than break my word". If Bravo has been told he plays all the domestic cup matches, then he plays all the domestic cup matches.

The exact opposite happened in the final v Wigan. Folk wanted Hart in net, Bob agreed - and we lost.

I've heard it on tv mate which goes to show that it's fairly audible.

Torn on this
Head says World Cup Willie
Heart says Subuteo Bravo

All because of the karma
when Bobbie dropped his pants and Pellers sticking with Willie .
Managed to get txts to that final and it was awesome when Willie saved the day

We beat them already with Bravo in goal? Whats the problem? Let the media concentrate on having a go at one of our own and we get on with winning matches and enjoying the football we have on show.
derby day the scores were level,

Lloris was on his back to France not so long ago, to small to weak shit on the ball, even Navas notched against him
