Well pep cost us the Europe game (and the tie) playing him at lb .

Did well last night but I was shitting myself at every minute when Danilo and laporte were kicking balls out of play and failing to control early on. They are the masters of one shot, stuffy goal normally.

Not negative, I'm buzzing and it was an absolutely mammoth performance and the defence choice paid off, but it could easily not have done.

24 hours later and I'm also still buzzing. That was our performance of the season by a mile.

Incredible team spirit, incredible fans and Pep got it spot on. Massive performances all over the pitch and we only get better from here.

The clearance by Stones will go down in club history if we win it again this year, and I honestly think we will.

Also, let's not forget that a four point gap doesn't mean we need them to lose. Just two draws drops those points and they've got their run of average results to come.
When I go to my grave, I shall go with content. I shall go in the knowledge that every rag fan's nightmare ends with a single word: "Aguerrrrroooooo...."

Do you know what I am still buzzing from Thursday night and it’s now Saturday afternoon what a fantastic performance from the boys and the stadium sounded like it was really noisy giving them a taste of what it’s like when opposing teams go to their shithole of a ground

Quite a bit off stuff on social media about city players don't like Salah , some great photos of Bernado , Aguero and Mendy staring him out after the final whistle plus Vinnys calling him a pussy . Something has deffo gone on it seems don't expect it to ever go public but our players certainly had the last laugh Thursday night :D

What's to like about him? I think half of the league defenders hate him.
It is hard not to when all he does is dive.

The crying about him after the CL final last season won't have helped.

Ha ha ha, tears still running down my eyes ;-)

Still supremely proud of this game, fucking immense and probably the best display of football/passion I've ever seen, from player and fan.

Wish I was there.

I remember shitting it when Keegan lined up Wiekens, Mettomo and Sun as 3 CB in the last derby at Maine Road but that turned out great too.

Sometimes a manager needs to take selection risks as you can only piss with the dick you've got, you just have to hope the players selected step up when it matters. Laporte did just that, as he has done all season
