      at least we have flushed out the City fan.
      The more people Big up City the better we can go on just like yesterday winning games and putting points on the board and they cant do anything about it

      Didn't seriously expect Chelsea to get anything but their defence was woeful. 3 minutes in and they fall apart. When yer see these teams collapse in a heap my respect for Rafa goes up a notch. Least he has a clue how to organise a team to defend. And in truth none of the Newcastle team would get into City's team, so to beat them speaks volumes for Rafa's coaching skills.

      Honestly don't see why Sarri till continues with Kante further forward.

      The wee man is one of the best defensive midfielders in the world, it's been shown by him winning two premier league titles in a row with two different clubs.

      If he's just accommodating Jorginho, then the man's a phoney. If I can see it, then everyone can see it.

      I thought Chelsea could get something today but then I remembered that their defence is crap, I was also very underwhelmed by Spurs, I fancy us to win both those games. The only tricky one is Manure and possibly Bitters all the other games are winnable.

      Yeah I don’t know why so many posters using the word ‘bottled’. We just didn’t play very well. Bottling it suggests the lads lost their nerve, weren’t man enough etc. I didn’t see that. It’s bizarre to feel disappointed with a point at OT given we usually lose there.

      Chuffed to be top of the league at this stage of the season.

      How dare you be happy when “we’ve dropped two points”!!! :lmao:

      Can’t you see “City will win all their games” and “how we’ve played our last game is how we’re going to play for the rest of the season”??? Can’t you “understand” my “self-inflicted misery”? :lmao:

      We were doing well until that cluster of injury stoppages along with Firmino going off disrupted us.
      After that, we never quite got going again.

      Would like to know why that disrupted us so much though. When that happened I was thinking ‘sound, halftime around the corner, we’re going to go for the throat here’. Instead it seemed that Utd’s resolve grew and we looked terrified to try anything. Found it quite bizarre that it had that impact on us to be honest as it was a clear opportunity.

      I think we had an excellent chance to put them to sword once their injuries started, with a limping Rashford, and makeshift midfield, and players playing out of position, we could've had a field day with them, but seems like players were not up to it. Worrying form this. If we don't pick ourselves up, then we may as well say goodbye to this thread for this season soon.

      How dare you be happy when “we’ve dropped two points”!!! :lmao:
      I'm happy with 1 point. I would be happier with 3 - which were there for the taking.

      Can’t you see “City will win all their games”
      That's skirting the real issue. The real issue is that given how we have performed lately, they very probably won't have to win all their games. 

      and “how we’ve played our last game is how we’re going to play for the rest of the season”???
      To be fair we have been struggling for about six weeks now, and we've seen our lead drop from a possible 7 points (5 actually) down to a meagre 1 point. And that's come about because of how we have played over the last six weeks; poorly (Leicester, West Ham, Utd). Any logical person would use those facts in an attempt to gauge as to how things might go in the future. I think that's completely rational a thing to do.

      Put it this way, if we smash Arsenal 3-0, then City 3-0, then Spurs 3-0, then Chelsea 3-0, then lose to Cardiff 3-0, would you be surprised, would you not expect us to have smashed Cardiff - given the last four games? I would. And that is why some think we might continue to struggle from here on in. Passed performances leading to points being dropped at an alarming rate (relative to where we are at the season and in the league).

      Can’t you “understand” my “self-inflicted misery”? :lmao:
      It's understandable that some will view past performances and resultant dropped points as an indicator as to how things will play out in the future. Sure it's not a definite, but there are good reasons for drawing that conclusion. To be fair, we can only go on the information we have at hand. Nothing more.

      I doubt either us or City will win every game from here on in. It's about who drops the least amount of points. If that's the case (and it is), something at our club had better change pretty quickly. Starting against Watford would be nice.

      There's shades of Benitez here when his team only lost 2 games all season but too many draws meant we lost the title to Utd then, hope I'm wrong though!

      I think the key difference is that we were very much chasing that season, the 4-1 win st toilet gave us some hope but we were relying on them dropping points. As things stand Destiny is still in our own hands so that’s not such a bad place to be in.

      Spot on.

      Majority of frustration has nothing to do with the position we're in and everything to do with how folks blame the team / manager / results for the way they are feeling.

      Top after 27/38? Having that and grinning like the cat that got the cream all day long me.

      lets just reflect on our season so far. Points 66 twice as many as Everton and 14 more than UTD. lost one game and conceded 15 goals.
      Top of the league with 11 games to go despite all the experts handing City the title back in September.
      The problem is some people feel they have a right to be entertained and win every game or it spoils their day. We are entitled to nothing if anyone has an entitlement its the lads and lasses who go to grounds like Old Trafford and sing their hearts out but you don't here them whinging at every single decision the manager makes.
      Its getting to be a joke well actually its anything but funny

      For me, I don’t look to blame with frustration, but my frustration comes from the fact I know we can do so much better because we’ve shown it plenty of times so it’s annoying when we then don’t turn up. Some days I handle it better than other days.
