***Official Match Thread - City v Southampton***

Postby Beefymcfc » Sat Apr 05, 2014 8:21 am

It's early, but who cares.

Come On City!!!

MATCH FACTS
Head-to-head


•Southampton have won five of their last 10 Premier League games against Manchester City (D2, L3).

•However, Saints have lost their last three league and cup games at the Etihad Stadium.

Manchester City

•Mathieu Flamini's equaliser for Arsenal last week ended Manchester City's run of nine hours and 21 minutes without conceding a goal in the Premier League - their longest such run in the competition.

•City are the only team yet to draw a Premier League home game this season. They have won 13 of their 14 games so far, with their only defeat coming against Chelsea.

•Manuel Pellegrini's side have won 19 of the 23 league games in which they opened the scoring this season (D2, L2).

•They have used the fewest players of any team in the Premier League this season (23).

Southampton

•Saints' 4-0 victory against Newcastle was their biggest Premier League win since beating Leicester by the same scoreline on 8 December 2001.

•Their points tally of 48 is their highest after 32 top-flight matches since the 1984-85 season, when they eventually finished fifth.

•Southampton have dropped more points from winning positions than any other team in the Premier League (18).

•The only English player to have scored more Premier League goals than Jay Rodriguez (15) this season is Daniel Sturridge (20).

•Only Luis Suarez (11) has more goal assists than Rickie Lambert (10) in the Premier League this season.

We have used fewer players than any other club in the premier league?!

So much for all the wanker pundits that keep banging on about the depth of our squad.

Anyway, nice to see you get your thread back beefy - come on City!!!

Good to see Pellers isn't taking this for granted and I'm expecting to see a very motivated team today.

Is this the point where we push on, just as in the title winning season, or are we awaiting the return of Sergio to mirror the return of Carlos?

Golf anybody?

I hate when there's no time for a pint before the game, it makes me want us to really thrash the opposition.

More than happy with that side although I do feel a little uneasy regarding pace up against our left side of defence. Our forward intent looks good though and I can't see Southampton keeping us out.

The change in keeper for the Saints may cause a little unease in their back line. The 3 England hopefuls will be putting in maximum effort to prove they want a spot in Brazil. We'll definitely have to keep an eye on our defensive line and make sure they don't get a free run on goal.

I'm going for a 3-1, maybe 4.

Exactly. There's no rule about drinking before 12 o'clock ;-)

PS. Anybody know of a top quality Joan for this? Please PM me if you have and thanks in advance.

Forgot about that fucktard. Let's hope he's crying into his half Rag/half Dippers bib by time we're finished.

With our new BT City Square and the amount of times they've had us on I'd say they are aligning themselves for the future of the Prem, not the past.

T'is good news.

Who are the pundits, Macmanananananaman, Hargreaves and that keeper type bloke?
