Merry Christmous Everyone wrote: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.

I'm very interested to see how he develops because he's been built up as something very special but hasn't shown it at all in a Liverpool Shirt (although he's only played a couple of times in cup games). Curtis Jones and Elliot look streets ahead of him as an example.

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.


Also, when City beat us last season, we had a goal dosallowed for offside when it wasn't - that cost us 1 pt, and gained city 2. Cost us the league that one decision.

I usually can't stand Robbie Savage as a pundit but he won ne over with his responses to that City Fan

I am greatly enjoying the city fans griping. My favourite came from my mate who is a blue. He told me after the defeat to Liverpool that City were concentrating on the champions league anyway this season. Despite him saying its shite and he's not interested in it for the previous 10 years.


:lol:

I thought Poch had always stated that he wouldn't want the Barcelona job due to his time with Espanyol.

Strange from Barca - top of the league, qualified for CL knockout stages, Ballon d'Or winner in their squad but sure let's disrupt all that and change the manager half-way through the season.

Weird club.

they are quite unbalanced - got exposed in the Super Cup by Atletico, and perhaps Valverde wanted to leave?

Barca presidential elections are in a little over 18 months so the sacking was probably done with that in mind. No chance of Bartomeu winning again if the team bores fans. Should've been done last summer, but boards act in stupid and mysterious ways.

‘Going to Inter’ is becoming a metaphor for being gooseberry fool at your job so going to a different company a long way away where you don’t have to be as good.

That's a strange and highly specific metaphor.

Drives me mad how Levy thinks he can get that kind of money for a player with six months left on his contract. If I was Inter I would tell him to strawberry float off and take him on a free in the summer.

Spurs have just signed Gedson Fernandes on an 18-month loan, so maybe that'll help Eriksen get his wish.

He can sign a contract for the summer with them now too.

Manchester United would have to pay £5m to sack manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.


Keep him and give him the £5m anyway.

United getting absolutely pumped here.

Edit: What a miserable strawberry floating match.

United looked solid second half, result is harsh on Wolves overall. Romero should be starting over De Gea without a doubt.

Bloody hell. That's the first time I can recall I have been confident of a win and they've actually gone on to win. EVER. Usually whenever I'm super confident (like, in my bones, don't-even-have-to-think-about-it type of confidence) they always come a cropper. A very odd feeling indeed.

Edit: O wow at the Carlisle vs Cardiff game.

Edit 2: Rashford injured?! Noooo!
