still struggling, trying to make sense to yesterday's events, from a bed at the hospital, hence this thread may fall in the category of a rant mixed into a sort of tentative recognition process.
anyways, as an atheist I do struggle with the idea of "supernatural intervention" and
/or any form of superstition thereof; but the whole I saw yesterday defies the large part of what I learnt and grown staunch convincement in a lifetime...
in no particularly order:
1 English Nation surrenders traditional appetite for the Rule of Law, core of British Civilization:
I think I saw the Liverpool MP escorting an organized horde of thugs, rioting assaults to private property and interests of a multibillions investment that has generated countless jobs and wealth redevelopment in England. that on cusp of a long since announced effort, that has also received intelligence support from either LFC and local Mereyside media, in order to make sure that precautionary measures taken by MCFC on changing route went nullified.
under normal circumstances, in Britain, these events should be seen with lens different from those in use at the national media's sport desks... but as far as I am aware, as yet, the Home Secretary have not announced any probe on the Liverpool Metropolitan Police conspiracy against the Rule of the British Law.
2 Pep Guardiola, the greatest football manager of his time, for the first time in a career time I think, changes his mind on his unbreakable faith in winning games by imposing his game style and all of the suddend tries and adapts the style to a particular game by adding an addition central/holding midfielder: as a result, the two demiurges of City game (D. Silva & KdB) go lost and return to use only when regular shape is restored with just 1/3 of the game to go.
3 Nothing like winning by imposing builds confidence.
STILL!... on arguably the most important game of the season, it just took a hostile reception reception in shape of Bin Dippers town's civilized histree, for a team of hyper talented, finely trained and tipped in their skills, professional "sportsmen" to shake and crumble down like a bunch of chicken dicks.
Make no mistake, LFC have done nothing more than building pressure with their usual redention of frantic Gaelic football, City have done it all! I think I can't recall a single challenge won in the 1st half, nor a second ball won in all game, and you just don't compete by regularmy coming second best. had we lined up 5 Carls and 5 Beefys , with all their amateur feet and fat bellies, the sscoreline at HT had been nil to nil.
and for a side of this talent and competence, failing to score a single goal versus a defensive clueless set like that is textbook disgrace, no matter what very bad officiatting added on.
in terms of affirmation of MCFC's dominance on global stage yesterday the club has rolled back to the first year of Mancini's tenure in terms of attitude and character and, I for one, would train this team for the return leg by siding EDS at the derby and sending the spoilt brats for a forthnight shift on a construction site under the sun of Abu Dhabi.
For all the above, as the Holmes goes, "when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth", therefore I must concede that "Typical City", as enhanced art of self-harming attitude, does actually exist and having laughed constantly off its faithful believers over the years, I must eat my humble pie, kneel down in front of them and apologize profusely for my ignorant disrespect to their righteous belief.
since I am physically unable to attend, if anyone is interested in the tourist's ticket I bought on the secondary market, it'll be available at the concierge of a Piccadilly hotel, upon showing receipt of a donation to City in the Community, for the even money paid for it. PM for details]

5. ignore the cunt. he's on permantent wum mission. only TIDs may know City
You'd need to make a very good psychiatrist in order to guess what next in a eight yrs long line of hatred...
In Roger Ailes/Donnie Drumpf's words: "don't know it for a fact, but many people say so..."
there must be some truth, then!
