      We have a good advantage and are favourites, but this City side is good.  I mean in that first half against utd they scored 2 goals sterling missed 3 good chances and their were more.  They scored 2 goals could have easily scored another 3 goals against a very defensive and well organised team.   We need to really score first and really dominate the first half like last time to really kick the confidence out of them.They have lost 2 on the bounce and Salah is massive, we need him and at his best along with Mane and Firmino.

      Yes.

      I have a bad feeling after today, although I think most of it is seeing how impotent we are in attack without our front three working together and TAA, Robbo and Ox in support.  Hopefully the regulars will be fit and can set an early tone for the return leg with some solid attacking play.

      Yeah the biggest factor is that all our major first team players are available. Robbo and Salah.  We don't want any bad news as our bench is going to bland.  TAA needs to be the same as last time.

      I have watched the replay of the match and City is not as poor as we thought it to be. They missed some chances, if they had scored one of those chances, the outcome would be very dfferent. Without Aguero, half their threat was taken away and they only relied on 2 players in Sane and Silva to unlock our defence. Their main weakness is in their defence, they can score 2 goals and concede 3 next. Probably the opposition was giving their defence too much respect.

      I think their defence was shell shocked in the last game as probably no other club  ran at their defence with such speed and aggression. yes, their weakness is in their defence, if we could get the ball into their box, their defence will struggle. Score another goal early in the return lef and and they will need to score 5 to win the match. The match is won or lost in midfield. As long as we don;t given them time on the ball they will struggle. Every ball was targeting Sane in the last macth. If Aguero is in the team for the next match, he will need to be man mark as well as Sane.

      In my opinion their defence isn't bad.  It is just not used to being attacked.  Everyone seems frightened to attack them. We are the only team that really go for them.  And today Utd went for them when it was a lost hope and still manage to shock them.   I though agree that they don't like it and it effect them to making mistakes.

      City went 3:2 behind, brought on the big guns for the last 20 and couldn’t get an equaliser. 20 shots to 5 and failed to get on terms after being 2 up.
      That tells me, not just that the confidence has been shattered, but after wed night, they have been well and truly shaken to the roots. They are head shot. Their self belief has been destroyed, and that will not repair itself mentally in the short time, we all know that.
      They must be dreading Tuesday after them last two games.

      Agree with that.

      I actually don't think we will see the same level of complacency we saw today when we play them. I think they will play like how they did vs us in the 2nd half and Utd 1st half for 90 mins! So we will need to be at our absolute best!

      I agree mate I think they'll throw the kitchen sink at it. They've got no other choice really.

      Problem they have though is how the hell do you play gung ho against a team with an attack as good as ours?

      Uniteds goals before were just so basic. So simple. It's given me even more confidence now of going there and scoring not only one, but maybe two or three.

      Their biggest problem is that they cannot concede, and if they go all out from the begging they’ll leave a lot of space at the back. They’ll leave a lots of space and we can hurt them in the counter, to me one goal is what we need to be in the semis, don’t see them scoring 5 against us.

      They looked great in the first half because United allowed them to play.

      We need to stick to our game plan, high tempo, pressing the ball and breaking at speed.

      It’s hard for them to go all out attack when they know it will leave the spaces that we love to exploit.

      PSG played Barcelona last year, with a bigger lead from the first leg, scored away, and still went out. So I won't assume we've done the job until the ref says so.

      A game that had some highly questionable decisions in favour of Barca if I remember rightly?

      Yes you remember correct, one of those being a Suarez dive that gave Barca a penalty and one on Di Maria that was not sanctioned.

      Incident involving Neymar too wasn’t there?

      Don’t remember exactly, but there were quiete a few “questionable” desitions by the referee. Just what one can expect at those “special nights” at Madrid or Barcelona in the CL.

      United scored 3 goals against city but with crosses in the box to powerful players like Pogba, Lukaku, Smalling. I dont think they will have that problem with us. We will be looking to get in behind and pick them off.


      United seem to have mastered scoring bssic goals cos of their huge team.

      The first leg was about entertainment. The second leg is about endeavour.

      We have to survive the early stages of both halves tonight, which is when they usually strike. And if something goes wrong, don't panic. Because if we panic, the advantage we have will be wiped out in no time. They'll come at us all guns blazing at the beginning, and if we survive that, they'll throw the kitchen sink at it after half time, so I'm expecting a tough night. Of course a goal or two will help us,  and I know the coach and the players have talked the talk, but I think chances to score will be few and far between. Like I said, it's a game of endeavour.

      Best of luck to the team and the fans, do us proud, and hopefully we'll come through it by making a statement at home and abroad, about the direction we're heading in, and the progress we're making.
