We've had the week from he'll and we could have played better in certain moments. Pep could have done things better also of course.

But I'm not silly enough to think one week strips him of everything he's achieved this season.

Tbh mate, the ones piping up are the ones who wanted him gone last season I think.


he was 30 ft from me on Tuesday, I would not want to sit next to him at a game, he was like a loony he has more passion than the haters would ever give him credit for. He knew the ref fooked us over, he just wanted it out there. Some fans need to stop with the never happy, we are having the piss taken out of us. That is a fact, the tackles the off-sides and goals not not given the Warnocks telling Pep to get used to it it's England, after his player tried to break Sane's leg
tells you all we are treated like leppers, I do wish City would let rip in pressers, what have they got to lose. Mike Riley silence on no refs at the W.C ? they do not give a toss about the pinnacle of the career, They are part of an unknown body ruining football and keeping the likes of us and PSG in out place IMHO.

Dear Mr. Guardiola,
I’d like you to respect our opinion that uefa and it’s corruption need to be booed in the same way we respect your opinion on your homeland and your yellow ribbon. If you can’t find it in you to show us a little bit of respect and understanding for an issue that means a lot to us, please kindly remove the yellow ribbon when representing our club because if we can’t express our opinion, neither can you.
Thank you very much
Yours sincerely,
Tokyo Blue

—————

Ive no complaints on the football side of things but he really, really needs to show a bit of empathy with the fans on this.

I suspect he thinks the refereeing is because of him, which it clearly isn’t as it was happening long before he came to the club.
Your right leg I like; I've got nothing against your right leg. The trouble is neither have you.

Exactly what I was saying to this fucking idiot yesterday .

And for some fans who don’t know the difference , no one wants pep gone , that would be madness , some of us just do not like the cunt at all .

This is our prime golden time as a club. I can't think of a better manager in World football than Pep. The thought of Patrick Vieira coming after is not enticing!

If the powers nobble us now to ensure we don't win some important matches and trophies, it is going to be extremely difficult when we have the likes of Patrick Vieira, (or whoever?), in charge.

The corruption/injustice needs to be exposed, but who else besides City fans wants to change the existing system?

If other clubs we're seeing what we see every week then I'm sure they'd want to see a change. We've been there against the old Sky 4 and I always remember thinking prior to a big game that at least we will only be shit on for this game, at least we have probably another 15 teams where we won't.

Before Guardiola arrived i posted a few times on the style of football at Barca and that i for one was not convinced.

Since he has been here i have noticed that he has changed the approach since his Barca days.
So what this means (for me at least) is that he is progressing and adapting as a manager... no surprise there really is there.

Barca categorically had no plan B when they couldn't get through packed defences.
City have plan B, C, D, E ... etc

He doesn't strike me as stupid, stubborn yes but not stupid enough to not realise that he has to look at what happened in the last 3 games.
So i think we will see a reaction, hopefully one that allows this team to adapt the balance between front and back. It isn't necessarily helpful to compress a team into their own box, our most fluid and easiest goals have come from turning over possession with space to run into.
Compressing a team also leaves us more vunerable to the counter, as we all know and are aware.

I hope Pep starts to realise this and looks to adapt his setups. We need a stronger defence that is for sure, but i hope that he doesn't see that only as the need for a change in players, imo that would not solve the problem, as we have decent defenders who get in panic situations cos they get caught out. I know pace would help but isn't the complete solution.

Problem is it's usually against the top 4 clubs, (and CL opposition), where the silverware can be won and lost. We have been royally screwed this last week by officials in all our games. Next season all the top 4 will be significantly stonger. Liverpool will get Keita and a better GK. United will spend big again (Bale, Fred etc.) plus Chelsea and Arsenal will strengthen. We need to expose the corruption and injustice plus get in VAR. We may even have a transfer ban and FFP2 to hinder us?

I think has a plan A+ and A.

Mancini had a plan A B C and D hence why we had 4 top strikers.

We have 1.5 strikers now.

Dzeko took some shit here but how good would it have been to have him available in the last 3 games, just to lump it to him and play percentage football to try and squeeze a goal. I’d don’t want him back, but he option like that is always nice to have.

Teams will strengthen but so will we. One thing you cannot change is how a manager utilises those players and on the current crops, we ain't doing too bad.

No VAR though, and maybe a bond looking at the way they've tried to implement it and as for FFP2, I think we've skipped that gate now ;-)

Really hope so. I’ve never been one to cheer English sides in Europe. If it’s not City I want the other fuckers to lose.

Think Spurs will beat the rags in the semi and surely the dippers have used up all their luck against us

It would be nice to have a tall powerful striker. Not to lump it to though. For kev to find now and again.

That's an interesting one mate as I always used to support the English teams in Europe (bar the Rags of course). It was only when we started to go compete that my view changed.
