      I'm gonna be honest and say I'm worried. I didn't want to watch the shitty game, but I still kept checking the score every 5 mins.
      really disappointed with Bournemouth.

      Anyway I like seeing positive posts around here, make me stress less seeing other fellow fans have more confidence. Nomatter what happens, I'm honestly very proud of the team and the boss.
      Challenging the money machine for the title is not a easy thing to do and yet here we are. We have spent money but only what we have earned and gotten from selling players.
      No money doping going here unlike shitty.

      My fellow Red Brethren,
      There is far too much negativity flowing thru these boards, i can understand the apprehension, the tension and the nerve's its all part of the fun, but we've all been here before, some of us many many times,
      Our history is full of ups and downs season upon season,  this one is no different,  its Football it is what it is.

      We are on the brink of winning the title, it was never going to be easy, there was always going to be bumps in the road, from day one to the last , City are  deserving Champions and will not give up their title by just laying back and giving it up, we have to snatch it from them,

      We are as every bit as good as they are, some would argue even better, league position says so, so why can't we go on and win it ?
      Some say they have just a bit more and will probably win but i don't see it like that, i actually favour us and not because of red tinted specs, i truly fancy us because when we're on it no one can touch us, not even City, its close of course but for tempo, fluidity, balance paired with our defence, our attack and the right midfield  trio of choice we come out on top,
      The Watford mauling for example, play like that then its a no brainer,  fast tempo, a high line, intricate passing and a devastating delivery from both flanks , thats your heavy metal sh*t right there,
      Who can handle that in the remaining games?

      So onto BLUESHITE today,  as usual it will be all blood & thunder first 15, once the Neanderthals of woodison vent some of their pent up hatred it will settle down and we will start to show our domination,

      I think we'll win this in relative comfort,  blueshite are exactly that ,and shouldn't worry us too much......

      ...                      Allison
                Trent Matip VvD Robbo
                              Fabinho
                      Gini               Keita
                    Salah Firmino Mane

      Heart says-- 0-5
      Brain says --0-3

      Bit of a side note but does anyone else feel like the Merseyside derby has lost a bit of its passion and soul? I feel like to the players it has became ‘just another game’ but obviously us fans still have those derby nerves and it feels just that much more sweeter getting a win against Everton than Watford for example.

      Is it because of the lack of local lads in both sets of teams these days? I don’t know.

      Bit of both I’d say,the only  scouser in the starting 11 being Trent
      But that can only help really as the reds can maybe treat it as just another match without the added pressure of the local lads getting wound up by the sh*te.
      Today is not just any old derby as there is  more than bragging rights up for grabs today & our players will know this.
      I’ll be more than happy for the blueshite & there shithouse fans to lose there sh*t as long as we keep ours together,our football will do the talking today and not snide tackles & below the belt antics ,fully confident of a win today against a tin pot outfit at a two Bob ground 1-3,to the reds.

      Don’t think it’s just the derby. It’s football generally for me, it’s movef to a hyper professional game, where surprises are becoming fewer and fewer, not just in England but across Europe. All just seems a bit robotic to me.

      Agree,  plus you can add their attack on three fronts will inevitably take its toll, yes they have a squad to deal with it but they still lose quality, Ferdandinho being a case in point, he's out for a while, they missed Silva & KdB earlier this season and KdB could be out again, Aguero's legs fade in the latter stages and of course the mentality and pressure of HAVING to win wears you down eventually, i think they will drop points in the run in, a draw here or there would seriously damage their confidence, after we hammer BLUESHITE today we only have Spuds at home that could trip us up, anyone else we should be getting max points from.

      I really sense Citeh starting to run out of steam, I've been saying that for weeks now. 2 1-0 wins against mid table opposition is far from impressive, yes I know we drew to one of them, West Ham,  but that was away from home and a game where they played very well and we were extremely average.
      I sense us building up a head of steam but we must win today and I fancy us to win quite comfortably, quite simply if we play the same as we did against Watford then we win.

      Yep, signs are there, City starting to look tired, a few weeks back they were putting 3 or 4 past the likes of B'mouth,  i think its all about timing and pacing yourself thru 9 months, we were at our best up to and thru Xmas, then had our lean spell/blip, and now seem to be picking up where we left off b4 Crimbo, City have been ever constant for the most part but now for me at least look jaded, the next few weeks will be telling, they are picking up injuries to key players just when you need them most, whereas we are getting back on song with key players returning from long term injury, just in time for the pivotal run in !

      De Bruyne and Fernandinho both injured now.
      2 key players out.
      No matter how big their squad is, those 2 will be missed.

      Just need to go there and be professional and put them in their box.
      Great performance last week, that'll have given confidence.

      Definitely is. Because we spent a fair bit of time at the top this season, I now keep forgetting City have a game in hand.

      Bit weird how our game in hand on them was against the Mancs and now their game in hand on us is against them. Hopefully they get the same outcome or a defeat.

      It’s a good thing Gary Neville is not their boss. But he might give a call to Ole. And Ole might invite him to give a team talk. Hopefully not.

      Yea that is a weird. ;D.

      I think they will drop points before that as well. Really think they will struggle with all the games and Injuries.

      I'd love for Fulham to do us a favour but I'd be extremely surprised because Fulham's one big weakness is in defending their flanks and that is where Citeh like to attack.

      They were discussing it on sky the other night, this is the worst game after the international break. 12.30 Saturday KO away from home.

      Less time to prepare etc.

      Perfect scenario for a fulham shock.

      City will probably pump them, but the chance is there for a shock.
