    In fairness they have exclusive status, they are the reigning double champs and the only thing standing between us and a league title. Winning Sunday would be a huge step towards the title. Imagine bumming them 3-0 and moving 9 pts clear. I really think it would break their resolve.

    Sterling has said previously beating us last Jan gave them the belief they could catch us.

    Well of course it fucking did! If we had won we would have gone 10 points clear of them. As it was after the game we were only 4 points clear with half the season left to play.

    I think we should go all out to beat them. We played conservatively against them last season and were saved at the death by a dreadful peno by Mahrez. They hate being attacked, they have a ropey defence, and we need to go at it hard.

    I agree. Go all out and while it might by high scoring at either end their defence is worse.

    That's defo what we need to do.

    Should we do so & draw though, we'll still have a decent 6 point lead having played them once & played a fair few tricky fixtures as well, so it'd be a fairly good result, esp compared to the prospect of losing & seeing that lead cut to 3 & our momentum lost as their confidence soarsm.. So whilst I don't think we should try to be cagey, should we end up sharing the points I won't be massively disappointed by it (unless of course, we somehow batter them but fail to take our chances or something).

    I am over for the game with my son. Not secured my ticks yet. Might have one at the Kop though So not sure what we do if only one. Maybe just let him go and watch it at TIA or something. Anyone else going?

    That’s awesome, hopefully you get two but I’d imagine they are the most sought after ticket of the season.

    Them arriving in an unmarked bus would be a massive mental victory for us. Imagine going to a game and being too scared to show your colours because of a Koppaberg bottle.

    I'm picturing them being wheeled into the ground in big wheeled laundry bins from a laundry wagon.

    It's quite amusing to my small brain.

    Surprised the city fans haven't lobbied for their owners to build a replica of the Helicarrier as used by SHIELD in the Marvel movies. You can't hurl a bottle of Koppaberg at a bus if you can't see it.

    I see Guardiola took off keeper Edison at half time in their match with Atalanta. Hope the poor chap isn't injured.
