Not sure how bad this could get for Villa.


Also, genuinely don't understand why Mahrez doesn't start more. Every time I've seen him play for City, he's been dynamite.

Not a good first half for Villa.

Was expecting a bad day but this could be something truly awful!

Think we're going to really struggle to stay out of the bottom 3 as we head toward the end of the season.

This could literally be something like 13-0 by now. Flashbacks to Derby's last venture into the Premier League.

I always think there’s no shame in getting hammered by City-they operate on unlimited money cheat mode after all, but Villa really have been pushovers today.

I’d probably agree with that. In general you’re never overly bothered by taking a pounding from one of the big money teams, especially when they’re a bit depleted as Villa were, but they didn’t even really put up a fight which has got to be painful for Villa fans.

I remember Blackburn getting absolutely scudded 7-1 by Man United back in 2010 and thinking that - turned out it was the first and only time that every premier league team has scored in a single round of fixtures. Silver linings. :slol:

Almost better not to have scored, it made it a more memorable weekend by being unique in PL history :lol:

Yep. It also got Allardyce the sack and started a long and brutal slide into League One for us. :lol:

Does anybody know what the lyrics are to the Sky Sports jingle before and after they jump to adverts?

"When the going gets tough,
[something something something]"


I've tried googling with no luck. Driving me mad

Sorry, I couldn’t resist.

It’s actually a song called “Somethings Got to Give” by Labrinth.

You know that time never sleeps
Keep one eye open like
I've got my head full of dreams
All shattered and broken like
Never chose love, it chose me
But I'm still here making stones bleed
So I'll go on swimming upstream
Till I come tumbling down
Oh, when the working don't pay
Oh, when you're living on faith
Something's got to give
Something's got to give
Oh, when you're giving your all
Oh, when it's coming up short
Something's got to give
Something's got to give
Gotta give a little more
Woah, yes
When the going gets tough
Gotta give a little more
Woah, yes
In the name of the Father
Hey, I've been caught in the red
Needing the breath of life
But I came back from the dead
Diamond like, golden like
Never chose love, it chose me
But I keep burning endlessly, so
Go tell them angels I'm blessed (Go, go tell 'em)
There ain't no taking me down
Oh, when the working don't pay
Oh, when you're living on faith
Something's got to give
Something's got to give
Oh, when you're giving your all
Oh, when it's coming up short
Something's got to give
Something's got to give
Gotta give a little more
Woah, yes
When the going gets tough
Gotta give a little more
Woah, yes
In the name of the Father
Give a little more
Woah, yes (woah, yes)
When the going gets tough
Gotta give a little more
Woah, yes
When the going gets tough
Gotta
Say it (woo hoo)
We've made it
I said love it when a plan comes together
Baby, say it (woo hoo)
We've made it
I said love it when a plan comes together hey
Say it (woo hoo)
We've made it
Hey I love it when a plan comes together
Baby, say it (woo hoo)
We've made it
Say I love it when a plan comes together
Hey

606 is hilarious, City fans are such Cry arses. Liverpool are the Luckiest team in Premiership history, VAR wants us to win and my personal favourite "Trent handled the ball at Anfield" Bernardo handled it first, it's a free out to Liverpool yet here we are months later and they still wheeling that out. :lol:

As for Injuries, we are currently using our third choice centre back in Gomez behind Lovren and Matip, both out injured, Fabinho out, Allison was out for 2 months.

You have to be deluded or totally bias or both if you genuinely believe Liverpool are where they are for any other reason than being much better than everyone else.

Yes, he played a full 90 in the derby. Should have been subbed on 70 (we made no subs bizarrely) because he was pretty dead on his feet as he'd done a lot of running. His movement looked good though and he made intelligent runs with some nice touches. But he also didn't really get enough of the ball and you could tell he was getting frustrated as when he did get a sniff of goal, he immediately shot (when there were better options), and he never really connected with them. Difficult game to be dropped into though either way.
