Decent lineup. Interesting to see how Laporte does against a decent attack with no Fern shield (or any shield with fuckin Gundo playing!!).

Amongst all the other shaftings, I forgot they got us good with the fern suspension. That booking was another funny one.

I don't think I've ever witnessed a worse week for officiating since I started watching football.

They’ve not picked on Fern for a while so they needed to at some point. Remember his red against Burnley :lol:

Yes, I do.

It is amazing to think how often someone is wrongly red carded against us and how many legitimate goals are ruled out for our opposition

Shocking bench. Still, the first XI is decent.

Come on City

Well played Spurs fans giving Walker a good reception. Decent that they recognise why he moved.

Quote of the day on bbc football

"Josh: I think Spurs will edge it. 14 games unbeaten will give much-needed motivation for the spurs squad. City's 4 game losing streak won't help them as well."

Just goes to show how well football fans are informed these days and their desperation to stick the knife in and veer from facts!!!

These two cunts commentating are a total embarrassment to the game.

I don't see a huge problem with missing Fernie. I remember the Cup final when he went off and we looked better with Dave, KDb and Gundy.

My only problem is regarding the first two from above, who look really, really tired.

1-1 or 1-3


You are welcome.

Good shout.

Interesting that Gundogan has now played that pivot role against Arsenal, Chelsea and Spurs and he's looked really good in all three games.
