Manchester City (Home) Wednesday February 6th

Recommended Posts

Newcastle showed us the blueprint i guess.  Pray for a draw I'm not confident on this match.  Maybe have Gana man mark Bernardo Silva or whomever they have creating in the middle.  

 

                           Pickford

     Coleman Keane Zouma Digne

                      Gana   Gomes

         Bernard      Gylfi       Richarlison

                             DCL

They all create in the middle!

This is a hide behind the couch job.

App just offered discounted tickets.  I’m guessing no one wants to go to this and see us get killed

Midweek game so a lot of parents give it a miss as the kids won't get to bed until 11pm. Similar situation for those who have to travel far.

It'll be pretty much full, only a few hundred obstructed views still available.

Going to get twatted, if we do silva has two more games for me. He is the favourite with the bookies for the sack. We aren’t a team simple as 

Pointless letting him go before the end of this season. It wasn't two weeks ago I was calling for patience and suggesting keeping him until the end of next season, but it's not looking good is it.

Already seen loads saying it. 

For me, it just means I won’t mind it as much when we’re torn to shreds. But I absolutely want the three points. 

Consolation at best isn’t it.

I don't actually know how you go about beating City. If they want to win enough, they generally will do.

They absolutely took apart Arsenal in the second half, it wasn't even a contest. I can't see us trying to shut up shop like Newcastle did and if we are open in any way of make the type of mistakes we have been then we will get battered. If we are going to beat City then we will have to play through their press which is easier said than done. Hopefully Gana is back and we can sit him behind two of Siggy, Gomes or Davies. 

Up front, I am torn between the pace and energy of DCL to stretch them and generally be a pain in the arse and the better link up play that Cenk can offer. Whoever does play up top will need the ball to stick to them because if it keeps coming back too quickly we will be fucked. I would be looking to play Bernard as he is better in possession than the other wide players. I would start Lookman on the bench because I think it would be too risky to start him but if the game is tight in the second half then I think he could be a real threat on the counter.

I can't say that its a game I am looking forward to.

I hope Kenny starts over Coleman. Think Siggy could use a break here 

 

                               Pickford

kenny         Keane           Zouma          Digne 

                    Gomes       Gana/Davies

    Walcott              Bernard          Richarlison 

                                 Tosun 

 

would like McCarthy in midfield but he probably isn’t ready.

Scenario 1 - We win and get 3 points. Hooray!

Scenario 2 - We draw, benefits us more than City, god knows we need points. Hooray!

Scenario 3 -They win and go top of the league above them. Hooray?

Scenario 1 for me please Jeff.

Spot on. I won’t be going as as I wouldnt get back until the early hours on a good run. Also I’d have to drive and not get the train meaning I can’t even numb the pain with a number of pints  😂

The shouts for us to lose are ridiculous. We still have to play the 2nd derby. Win both these games and it’s all even between City and the shite. 

No - hopefully we lose tonight, beat Liverpool and City win the league by 1 point. It wont happen but that’s what I hope happens.

It won’t be all even if we win both games. City will still be 3 points behind (assuming they both match each other results in between fixtures).

It won’t be 4-3-3. I was hoping for Bernie replacing Gilfi 

So was I but we should be more solid in the middle with that line up because Gana won’t be trying to play as a 2nd striker and won’t neglect his defensive duties if he does play as the most forward midfielder, only problem I can see is he won’t be anywhere near as creative as Bernard but it’s gonna be interesting to see how it works.

If I didn’t know better, I’d think Silva must be trying to get sacked with that lineup.

Trying to lock up the midfield?

I get it, but playing a lineup with that little ambition while in the middle of a run of pretty pathetic attacking form won’t do him any favors.

Could it be he’s desperate for something to work because he’s got wind that he’s under the microscope, pressure can do strange things to some people but having said that I’m quite intrigued to see what happens.

Just meant in terms of our impact on the race. City can figure out another way to make up the 3 pts.

Me too.  

It's not a nice place to be but neither is watching that lot win the league and rub it in our faces. 29 years not winning the league is below them.... they hate it.  They've spent more money than any other club in the league to not have won the league. Since the last time they won it....

Commentators are terrible on what I'm watching; he was just explaining in very great detail that the reason Laporte had his hands on his head because he knows should have got that header on target.
