    Weโ€™re now in the business end of the season and the trophies are polished and waiting to be won.

    Ones done and dusted but the other three are up for grabs, The Champions League could be tricky with neutral grounds being used, the FA Cup, well we all know how that throws up upsets, and with one big game in the league that will probably be the decider, itโ€™s a big few weeks for the Chelsea Ladies…..Pagan

    I suppose it could be said that “anything is possible”. In my view, it will not happen this season or maybe in future seasons for any team. The whole structure of fixtures, domestic and International are too demanding for players, some will cling on to they want a CL medal, others there domestic titles or Cups but realistically to get them all in one season would be some feat for whatever team. City have a good team, strong squad and playing well but still a big ask and I think they will fall just short, however, we have won nothing yet and I respect the teams we have to play because they want to win it as well. For me, I would be more than happy with EPL and FA Cup. Jose can have Caraboo Cup but I think Pep would tell me off for saying that!!!!

    I assume Pagan your question is can City do the Q?
    In a word, “no”. There are far too many circumstantial factors that can upset any quest for a Q; injuries, marginal refereeing decisions (even with VAR), loss of form, COVID outbreak in a squad, etc, etc, etc.
    I think the question is somewhat premature, as we haven’t won anything yet. If, at the end of April and we had secured the PL, won the LC, reached the FAC Final and semi final of the CL, then that is the time we can seriously think it maybe on. Hell of a lot of water to flow under the proverbial bridge before then.

    I think Pep overthinks CL games. If he stops that, then yes. Though Jose will do everything he can in the LC to bring Spurs a trophy whilst heโ€™s there.

    Pep is taking this all in his stride. His team are playing very very well at the moment. I know there are high expectations set, but just winning one trophy each season is an achievement in itself.

    It most definitely isn’t a failure if he doesn’t so I hope neither they are too hard on themselves and the media doesn’t start a negative narrative toward them.

    A father and son are in a horrible car crash that kills the dad. The son is rushed to the hospital; just as heโ€™s about to go under the knife, the surgeon says, โ€œI canโ€™t operateโ€”that boy is my son!โ€ Explain.

    If this thread really was about City and not the Chelsea Ladies team I think the Quadruple is still a very big ask no matter how well City are currently playing.

    Also from an English football pov I wouldn’t want to see one team totally sweep the board I don’t think it reflects well on the rest of the PL but if any team could do it City could.

    9, nearly 80% of people when asked canโ€™t answer it, itโ€™s called gender Schemas, itโ€™s a unconscious gender bias, a bit like assuming Man City men are the only ones going for a quadruple…..Pagan

    Snakes, yes I was aware that Arsenal Ladies had done it, but as 9 mentioned this post was for my amusement to see whoโ€™d jump on the menโ€™s bandwagon.

    Going back to the Arsenal Quadruple, it was easier for them to win domestic titles then compared to now as the Womenโ€™s game in this country was no where near as competitive then, however we were at the time miles behind Europe and for Arsenal Ladies to win the European competition was an absolutely fantastic achievement for them and helped to kickstart the growth of the ladies game in this country…..Pagan
