Spot on Mase - it’s called a match thread whereby opinions are pointed out in the moment .

I’ll point to you Doug - always a smarmy cunt who never posts in the match thread but comes on afterwords with your smarmy opinions belittling fans who vent their feelings during the match.You do this time and and again.


I don’t understand it. Aguero has set such high standards that of course if he keeps giving the ball away or running in to players people should mention it.

Imagine half time Pep just says to him “Hey Serg you’ve given the ball away a lot, but remember you scored that goal against QPR so it doesn’t really matter. Keep it up!”

Of course he’ll point out to Sergio that he’s been poor. And it’s OK for fans to do that as well!


Excellent post. The match thread is a live, evolving commentary as the game happens. Emotions are involved and there is no place for smarmy after the fact comments.

Personally I have no problem people pointing out any player in the match thread for not doing stuff, but the 'we should get rid' or 'he's lost 2 yards of pace etc, can't score etc etc stuff about Aguero is risible in the extream (and it often appears in non-match threads lately as well). As I've said thou it's not really a problem because his main job is to score goals for the team, something he does time and time again. All points of view at the end of the day mind.

Anyone with half a brain understands what you have just posted .
Doug doesn’t get it though ......which answers a lot.

It’s all true Carl and it’s what makes the game seem more real and personal, for me anyway, not being there and hearing the banter first hand.
For the likes of Doug and anyone else at the game, though I think it’s probably a bit much expecting him/them to be texting and watching at the same time.
Even myself, safely ensconced on my comfie sofa, try to leave the phone alone until halftime so I can properly concentrate on the game, but it’s hard not to comment when something major happens.

I agree with Chinners. I know it’s knee jerk during the game, but quite often we get totally over the top summations of players and their place in future teams/squads.

I don’t have a problem with any of it really.
It adds to the match day experience, as I said.

I do think people at the games get a very different perspective though. Opinion at a game can quite often differ considerably from what’s offered to us on TV.

Some people like to vent, some people like to consider. its a fact of life.

Listening to some fukker harp on about the same thing constantly is the annoying bit, like they have an agenda and the carping is just
the opportunity to push it again, and again, and again.

Some posters venting is comedy and i for one wouldn't want that to stop. think Carl

So i suppose it is the way you tell um.


It is the posters with fuclin zero % style that are boring and very quickly get annoying... think Phips

Had a bad feeling about yesterday's game, but there was no need. Maybe my favourite win of the season after all the anti City stuff they spouted on CMs thread. Great to see Razza in there so early in the game.

I had my season ticket for 20 years mate and still vented the same at the match as I do in the matchday thread at half time, sitting in the car waiting for traffic to die down.

Not sure if it's been mentioned elsewhere, but our win yesterday pretty much guarantees us European football next season. 7th placed Burnley now can't catch us, and so the only way we'd fail to qualify is if Arsenal beat us in the League Cup final but finish outside the Top 6, and the FA Cup is also won by a team that finishes outside the Top 6, and we somehow collapsed so badly (and the teams below us likewise improve so impressively) that we end up finishing 6th. Even then, games still to play between other teams might make such a scenario impossible.

You and Mase work so hard to justify your behaviours. One day you'll get acceptance. One day.

What behaviour is that?

You mean the acceptance where three people have just agreed with me?
