Pep has a point on quiet weekend games and leaving early but doesn't have a point on shit week day attendance

While it's topical, Mancini loved us, pep (imo) thinks we're a bit shit.

Have we got worse as fans? I'd argue we have. Mancini was here when wed not won anything in my lifetime

Hoping we pick up a win and make qualifying a lot easier to focus on the league for a bit. Surely if we play a strong side we’ll give them a run around again.

Where abouts do you stand ??

I don't think that can be argued

I used to be 109/107 stood and sang. Showsec banned everyone and everyone moved to South. South hasn't changed since we've moved there. I moved to 110 last year n even there is half tourists or just shit at "shit games" aka alot of different faces and people filming saints corners IN 110. Showsec have given up since a few of (one lad on this site) took them on but damage was done and most of 109/107 sits in silence so showsec have killed our noisiest blocks.

Bit surprised there’s no Aguero. Still, Jesus is due a goal or two and the other forwards are in good nick so got to be happy with this line up

Not on the bench either. Maybe injured?

He was terrible against Southampton, shockingly bad in his defensive role, not quite as bad going forward.

Good lineup, Zinch was great last time he played. Hope Jesus gets a hat trick.

Come on City!

Agreed. He looks like a player who needs a run of games. He looks very rusty.
