    I think he’d happily see us swap trophies this year.

    It’ll be very interesting if we can pull so far ahead that we can prioritise the CL come March.

    Winning our next three league games will make it almost impossible to catch us. Not that you’ll hear me saying that outside of here.

    I don’t think it was. There was way less contact than when Origi was taken out in the build up into the scums goal.

    Calvert-Lewin did what he always does - shit himself when presented with a chance so threw himself on the deck.

    That said, I was surprised it wasn't given. But it would've been soft.

    It wasnt a penalty. It wasnt given, and the refs said after the game that it was correct not to give it.
    Calwert Lewin has already gotten one very soft penalty at Anfield. So his luck has run out the falling over to easily bumbling cunt.

    It's one of them that, if the ref gave it, VAR wouldn't have overuled.

    Not according to 3 referees who agreed it wasn't a penalty, and even so, had it been given, under the triple jeopardy ruling the worst vvD would have been received was a Yellow,

    City are still a very good team, but I watched that game and I was surprised at how flat and one-paced they were. Everything seemed too slow, and they didn't really change up how they played, even when it wasn't working.

    Obviously they're missing players in defence and attack, but some of the big signings didn't look as good as the players they replaced; Rodri just doesn't sense danger like Fernandinho and doesn't offer as much protection; their LB (whoever they play there) is a fucking disaster; they don't actually have any decent fit CBs; Jesus is a poor substitute for Aguero and the two Silvas look well off the pace.

    Any side would miss the likes of Sane, Aguero, Laporte and Kompany, but a club as rich as City should not have to play a 33 yaer old DM as a centre-half.

    It makes you wonder if they had to curtail their spending, relatively speaking, so as to make it less blatantly obvious how much they were flouting FFP.

    Probably just hubris and arrogance - almost sounded a bit Fumey there...

    Well, I suppose they have eschewed big, splashy £70-80m-plus signings, but that doesn't really hide the fact they've spent over a billion on lots and lots of 30-40-50m signings.

    Just look at the full-backs: Angelino (laughably shit) £11m; Walker £50m; Cancelo £60m; Mendy  £52m.

    fuck's sake.

    Walker has been good for them.

    Not sure what the deal is with Cancelo but Mendy for 50M has been a disaster so far.

    Stuart Pearce has been saying city need another striker because if Jesus gets injured they have no backup. How many top drawer players does he want in that squad, sure why don't we just allow city to have a 40 man match day squad as they can afford to fill it.

    I don't remember the who's who now but lots of their defensive signings have been the second or third most expensive defensive signings ever at the time.

    Sure they didn't sign Van Dijk but Stones and Walker were definitely not far off record breaking deals when they were done, it does make me wonder if @StevieM is right and the manager isn't allowed to break transfer records so they can hold some sort of high ground on spending.

    He has, but I was talking about the overall outlay on fullbacks alone

    Yesterday I heard on Talksport they were discussing a penalty decision and the commentator said he couldn’t understand why it was taking so long to award the penalty as it was obviously going to be given, in the studio they were talking about what VAR was checking and said “we can check what they are looking for on the App” and told the guy at the ground that VAR weren’t even looking at a penalty or offside but just if it was a goal or not.
    What App are they talking about and surely if there is one it could be checked if VAR was working at all at Klanfield and also what is being checked each time.
    The commentator said he was sick and tired of VAR and so was the SU manager when he spoke to him.
    Just mic them up and show it on the screen so everybody knows what is going on, and if the ground doesn’t have a screen then they shouldn’t be allowed to play there, ie OT & Klanfield- make them have a screen and if they have to lose capacity then so be it.
    We are going to be cheated out of the best ever footballing season of 100 points and the w4nkers in Merseyside will be shown as the highest points scorers and they remove all our records. It is a fraud of the highest order.
    All this is designed so we implode, they are hoping our fans will stop going and our owners will leave, that’s what they want.
    I fücking hate football with a passion right now, it is bent.

    GOT currently debating the merits of the latest manager to be linked with Eberton: Unai Emery.

    "He plays ponce football doesn’t he? When are people gona realise that ponce football never works at Everton. We are the Dogs of War!

    We need someone passionate and loud. Look at Klopp, look at Bing Dunc, it is possible. Why are we always going for boring tacticians?"

    Wow.

    So, the Sterling offside decision that the caller acknowledges was right, was wrong.  Virgil "mowed down" the forward last Wednesday ("I have never seen a defender mow down a player like that before!") and Sadio being kicked across the back of both legs against Leicester wasn't a penalty?

    Of course, no mention of the Villa game where VAR kept adjusting the line until it made Bobby 'offiside' for what should have stood as our equalizer...

    These twats are fucking delusional.
