    Some interesting games this week in the CL with Spurs v Barca and Napoli v Liverpool standing out. I have a feeling both PL sides might win.

    Can only see a City win but it’s a potentially difficult game for United v Valencia given everything.

    Spurs have what it takes to bear Barca,they are all over the place right now! Another defeat for United on horizon me thinks….

    Won’t be easy Mav considering everything that currently surrounds the Club but purely on a football basis United should have enough to see off Valencia at OT.

    Will Michy play is the question?😊

    Agree with you on Spurs v Barca Spurs seem to have turned the corner and Barca aren’t going well currently could well be a Spurs win problem is you can never rule out what the little genius might do.

    I just hope City can score some early goals and settle down. It will not be easy, if you are in CL you are a good team and capable

    That’s the thing with Barca, they’ve got Messi and he cost a lot more than 5 mill that’s for sure!

    Looks like we’ll be starting with both Son and Lucas, so that sort of pace should give Shakeria Shagger and his boys something to think about…

    Problem is though we’re likely to also have Dier and Dembele playing the DM roles and they’re not exactly pulling up trees at the moment… hopefully they’ve been saving it up!!

    Going to miss the Wee Viking and Van the Man, that’s for sure!

    The Spurs v Barca game is probably the most difficult one to predict as Barca are on a very poor run drawing at home to Girona followed by a loss at Leganes followed by a home draw against Bilbao whilst Spurs are in the middle of an injury crisis. It may ultimately come down to who is fit enough to play for Spurs.

    Some great news for City if not the rest of the PL ahead of their game v Hoffenheim with De Bruyne already back in full training and it’s even been suggested he will. possibly on the bench tonight v Hoffenheim considerably ahead of schedule although I can’t see City taking any chances by rushing him back.

    Brian, too precious not to be mate but it’s great news for City that he’s so well ahead of schedule.

    If I was a bookie I would be trimming City’s title odds right now.😊

    Massive game for Mourinho tonight I think United will come through this one if not the pressure on Mourinho will ramp up still further.

    Napoli is not an easy game for Liverpool particularly with the City game on the Sunday but Napoli got stuffed 3-1 by Juve on Saturday and Liverpool beat Napoli 5 nil pre season so providing Klopp selects a strong Liverpool team they should be too good for Napoli.

    Will Sanchez play for Utd after apparently saying he wished he’d gone to City!

    Probably. Everyone starts again once a new Manager is appointed which looks more and more likely.

    I’m not sure what Sanchez has to complain about anyway City didn’t want to secure the transfer United did secure the transfer and he’s on a Kings ransom at United too.

    Sanchez made his bed so he should just get on and lie on it now as should the United squad as a whole who are all on enormous wages and they need to demonstrate they deserve them and start playing for the United fans even if some don’t seemingly currently want to play for the United Manager .

    Sanchez should have waited until the Summer Mav and examined all of his options but the United offer was too good to turn down and despite their current form they are still one of the biggest Club’s in the World.

    I doubt he will go in January very few Club’s if any will pay him what he’s currently earning at United and he’s contracted until 2022.

    Adlab, did you read the article? For starters, there are no quotes. Secondly he’s reported to have said things would have been different for him if he’d gone to City. Not quite him saying he wishes he’d signed for City! I certainly wish he had though. Terrible signing
