Been waiting to see that front 6 for Spuds all season, and Poncho does it in a game that isn’t on my telly!!
Not too sure about the back 5 though, have a suspicion we won’t be keeping a clean sheet somehow…6th November 2019 at 8:09 pm #51985
That was a clever build up and a well taken goal.
Liverpool need to be fully switched on for this come Sunday.
1-0 at Atlanta.6th November 2019 at 8:19 pm #51986
New balance, just depends on who pep has playing as Aguero rested usually means he’ll start, Sterling will probably start and kdb missing out. It’s an embarrassingly talent squad at city. Think you’ll turn them over as the squad is rotated.
Who knows, hoping for a cracker probably get a sinker

You couldn’t make it up… slapstick football at it’s finest!!! 🙂6th November 2019 at 9:06 pm #51990
4-4-2, appreciate the good words, cheers.
I don’t want to get too confident, because in my World, that usually returns karma and some kind of a Blunder! Matip can’t play. It’d be crazy for Klopp to place Milner in Defence. I think Gomez will start, or Lovren.
We NEED IT, Spot On for Midfield. In all honesty, I don’t think our Front 3 are firing on all Cylinders, so Lallana and/or Oxlaid have to be included.

Did anybody see the Spuds game? Sounds like a decent a performance according to the reports, with N-Dumb and Lo Cecil looking decent in the middle of the park. Defense not as brilliant as it could be, with Dier perhaps being the pick of the bunch.
Hopefully as close to that starting line-up as possible on Saturday please, with the contract rebels on the bench (or even at home!).7th November 2019 at 7:59 am #51999
City are having a season from hell with all their injuries now Ederson was forced off due to injury at ht v Atlanta with Bravo coming on looking a lot less confident than Ederson he was subsequently sent off with Walker taking over in goal and City held on.
Big shame for City if Ederson is ruled out with such a big game coming up and whilst City have a great squad and Pep will select his strongest team for Sunday it’s very difficult for even City to cope with the amount of injuries they’re having to cope with currently.
A loss on Sunday would make it very difficult to recover from and make the title race a lot less interesting for the neutrals.7th November 2019 at 8:27 am #52000

I can think of one neutral who couldn’t be any less interested in the title race already, let alone after Sunday…. 🙂7th November 2019 at 8:33 am #52001

Nine, there is absolutely no doubt Ederson will play Sunday mate
Agree about cities injuries but it just shows how good a squad they have when they can field a starting 11 like they have done in previous weeks but Laporte is a massive loss and so is sane
Doesn’t matter how good the squad is, you would still badly miss those guys7th November 2019 at 9:16 am #52004
Chucky, “I can think of one neutral who couldn’t be any less interested in the title race already, let alone after Sunday…. 🙂”
You must personally know tens of millions of neutrals then Chucky. 🙂
I think most neutrals would prefer to see a title race going to the wire and that the majority wouldn’t want to see a ptocession as happened a couple of seasons ago.7th November 2019 at 9:20 am #52005
That’s why I said 1 neutral, my furry friend! 🙂
The only time I really watch Moneybags or Liberoools is when they’re playing the Spuds…

Sean. allegedly it’s a muscular injury and according to Pep it will have to be monitored between now and Sunday. Sounds like he’s not definitely out more like 50/50 but if he plays I doubt he will be 100% fit.
Titles often turn on injuries and who has the least City’s injury list this season has been awful.7th November 2019 at 9:23 am #520087th November 2019 at 9:33 am #52012

442….he will start with KDB, he is also due an inspired game, we shall see. Bernardo will be needed and I would have Stones/Garcia as the CBs Augerro will start as will Ederson but the loss of laporte and Rodri maybe too much for us against Liverpool
Apart from injuries the main aspect of City this season is they are not playing with the same authority for 90 minutes, something that happens to all top teams eventually as they adjust to different players but I still think we are yet to reach our game over the last few seasons. The effort is there but quality of reading game has dipped a little.It is recoverable though. Teams know City will not go anywhere to defend or put 11 in the box, neither will Liverpool for that matter so an entertains game is the prospect, let us just hope ALL fans behave themselves before, during and after the match.7th November 2019 at 10:04 am #52013
