    I have said from the start…Technology ruined by humans….so what is the point? Things could get worse next season, I hope not but we are beginning to see major changes appearing now to the game. It has been said that the 5 Subs rule will stay next season, full bench next!!!!

    Nine..I would not disagree with that if it was that simple. If it was an FA decision then all I am saying it should have been dealt with quicker whatever the conclusion, if the Police were not pursuing it then it is even more of a mystery why the FA did not act quicker, after all it would appear it is there rules that are effective. My guess is, they were clueless and sought advise to see how much clout they had. I do agree with you though that the act itself was wrong and you cannot have players acting in this way. However, the spectator {s} had a part in this as well, have the FA pursued them as well?

    My question then would be. Was it a legal, club or FA offence….I cannot work this out……if it was a FA offence then he has broken some rule, OK, so why did they have to wait for the Police to intervene. Then again if it was a legal offence he will be charged accordingly. I am getting to old to work these things out

    We are far from clear of the virus yet and the acts of stupidity we have been witnessing will only prolong the end game. There will be no money left in pot for any more bail-outs either if the second wave hits us hard. It is up to people to do the right thing

    Why did it take so long??? Well ,the answer to that is….its the FA…a useless bunch of people

    OK..the incident should not have happened but the punishment does not fit the crime. The crime was how long it took them to make a decision

    Nil….Dzeko…loved the guy but he was frustrating, however with Mahrezand DeBruyne crossing the ball as they do he would have a bagful of goals…a bit too late now I am afraid. Outside Augerro nobody is going to get a golden boot award, that said the goals are well distrubted through the team, until Southampton!!!! On to Newcastle, expect the same again, all behind the ball

    PS..I maybe sounding a bit churlish as well since we score more goals than anybody else so when we have a blank day, it is unusual

    Nil, as much as we miss Augerro that does not excuse Sterling, Jesus, Mahrez Silva and Bernardo missing a hatful of chances. I think Pep will look for somebody sharp up front but has to be mobile in Peps team

    The only upside, Surrey Blue, is when they loose, often they do not play badly but individual mistakes have a tendency to happen, we are architects of our own downfall then. I know, in these difficult times, games coming fast and frequent mistakes will happen but then again the level of mistake is magnified. Last night, we had loosing possession cheaply on the half way line and our keeper playing CB on walkabout…these are silly mistakes. As for Jesus, a good grafter but not a natural goalscorer, with Augerro out we do not have one. Sterling is not one in my opinion either but his contribution are very good. I would like to see a youngster given a chance in the few games left this season, however, we have not nailed down second place yet!!!!

    Started to slow to night, messed about in defence and our plan to put high balls into the box against tall defenders when you have small attackers is more than puzzling to me. Too many off there game to night and needed youngsters with a bit freshness about them, no excuses. The only thing that pleased me to night was David Silva efforts to change the game and young Garcia got another 90 minutes against a top scorer, Ings , and did Ok We need to find a striker…quick.

    Mak…now you see what I meant previous post

    Mak..Have been watching City too long, I should know better in these enlightened times and with the squad and manager we have. I thought I had passed the divide last season, when I went to a match and had enough confidence that we would win no matter who the opposition was and even when we were beaten we usually played a good game. My nervous disposition about the CL is one of self uncertainty not the team, after watching them beat R Madrid I should have better confidence. City are capable, I just cannot get rid of the “but” out of my mind!!!!! Ohhhh. to be a City fan. We have now had a few years of success I should no better

    Re City defence….I would be the first to admit that our defence, including the keeper have made some bad mistakes, , not all down to CBs either, our full backs have gone missing at times, so, the clamour for a CB is over stated, OK we do need one because Otamendi will be going and Stones will not feature much and probably move on. Then again for those that like statistics over the 32 games to date City have let let 8 goals more than Liverpool and scored 11 more but we are still second, due to the lapses as mentioned I am not a lover of statistics however they are concocted because the only one that matters is the points column. I do believe City defence will improve and that should make us a better team, we will probably go for an experienced CB and a striker, from that point i would have confidence in our emerginging youngsters.

    Mak…I think a CL ban on City may just give them enough to say lets go and win it this year, personally I think we are still not quiet ready, but put our game together and a little incentive may just do it. I do believe there will be six competing next season for EPL with City and Liverpool ahead because both will freshen existing squads

    Re KDB….I have a feeling that if City are banned from CL, KDB will stay. There iss always a risk moving to another club and KDB appears to me to be a very pragmatic person and takes his family into consideration as well. If he moves…it will be the Manchester weather!!!!!! Now…he has a good club, good players around him, probably Captain next season, great facilities and a top Coach
    We shall see what happens soon

    Nine..It is a massive “IF” Messi to City, personally, I think it was never on the cards but should I be wrong he would only sign a 1 year contract and with players capable of winning, which City have.I think City will go for somebody younger and be a big part in the next “project” I would not agree that Liverpool players were not focused either, well according to Mr Klopp and I would not under value City’s performance this way. I hope they do the same performance against Arsenal and Real Madrid now. Nothing wrong with Liverpool, they were just beaten by a better team last night…

    Mak…one thing that has developed between City and Liverpool is that there is a respect for each other and both know they are capable of winning a match…that is what makes it interesting to me , last night it was City’s turn to show there capabilities, I am sure Pep and Jurgen know that and it is great for the Premier league although I do not want it to develop into a two team race, I believe we will have a few more challengers next season
