      If we aren't top of the league tonight, title race is over. Massive mistake letting Clyne go in the winter. It's cost is the two points we badly needed. Henderson moving to right back messed our whole team up against West Ham I'm afraid. Never going to forget that if we don't win the league. I'm saying this now because I am increasingly pissed off City keep winning and angry Klopp was too weak to tell Clyne he could go in the summer. We needed him against West Ham.

      Look Nostradumbass, it's pure fantasy on your part that the Clyne sale has cost us points. He'd played less than 300 minutes in 18 months. His defending and poor attacking have cost us games. 

      Since going to Bournemouth he has helped them to a 6-2-7 record and has his usual awful aerial duel record and his usual lacklustre distribution. His time had long gone at this club, but I believe, based on watching him play for us, he would have cost us points and not accumulate them if he had stayed and played.

      How about getting Batshuayi on for Benteke?!?!

      What a donkey benteke is he was god awful from what I seen yesterday (turned off at 2-0)
      I think they said it’s about a year since his last goal (I know he’s been injured a good chunk of this season) and no wonder.
      Also ffs Crystal Palace how about engaging the team you’re up against and not completely sitting off them for 80 minutes?  I know this Citeh team are really good but ffs have a go

      Problem is when opposition team see City they think...oh oil money plastic club...don't care if they roll over us...better save our players

      When they see us: ooohh Liverpool...we will give them 200% fight.

      I've noticed this as well, it is really weird why teams just give up against Citeh, Palace yesterday thought it was better to protect a 1-0 loss than to have a go, really embarassing. The few times one of the Palace players won the ball back, by actually pressing, there was zero support, no Palace players busting a gut to make a break.
      I certainly don't think Spurs or Utd will be that passive or Leicester for that matter and Burnley, if they are motivated, can always be a tricky customer, especially at set pieces and especially at home, but they may well be safe by then.

      Referee disagrees. Red card to Deeney for a faint touch on Torrera's face LOL.

      Arsenal still look suspect at the back.  I bet this 10 men Wartford are gonna score.

      Arsenal haven’t kept a clean sheet away from home this season have they?
      Don’t get why they signed Denis Suarez, never plays.

      Hell of a strike by Mesina from distance, a rocket towards the top corner but smacked off the bar. Deserved a goal with that strike.

      Watford well on top and they’ve only got 10 men.

      Hopefully Arsenal get top 4 because you just know they will still be no threat so long as they have Emery.

      Be alright if Chavs got the other spot ahead of Spurs because they’ve got a transfer ban so can’t even improve their team on a return to the competition so will probably be no threat either.

      Spurs and United getting top 4 could be a problem because they will be able to attract decent players. Hopefully they both beat City though.

      Not sure if Cardiff beating Brighton is in our favor or not. Cardiff could have extra motivation next week when we play them, but on the other hand, City are visiting Brighton last week of the league and if everything goes to the wire...

      They would have fought anyway but this way Brighton might still be in a fighting mood when they face Citeh last game of the season. As for Cardiff, if we can't beat them then we don't deserve anything, but there's no room for complacency, it could be a bananaskin game.

      Mad the way when there was, say ten games or so left, there were games that I thought would be the worrying ones and ones, like these last ones, that would be none worrying games so to speak. I am now absolutely petrified of every one of these sides we've got to play.

      Brighton losing at home in a relegation battle is unforgivable, not even getting on the scoresheet too. Ridiculous

      Quote from Ribapuru
      We must beat Chelsea or we can't win the league I'm afraid.

      Well we did beat Chelsea, so (despite your announcement that it was a one horse race because City got an offside goal against Watford) I suppose we're still in it.

      We already got a favour from Palace this season, and Leicester. Asking for two favours from teams in the same season is a big ask.

      Everyone expected the league to be decided by now, as it was 12 months ago. Even if we ultimately fall short by a point, we should be delighted with our first home win against the mancs in 5 years, our first home win against Chelsea in 7 years, our 5 wins and 4 other good results in top 6 games, and also proud of VVD, our disciplined, organised, waterproof defence, our keeper picking up the golden glove in his first season in England, incredible levels of consistency, closing the famous "25 point gap" that everyone said couldn't be done, and taking the title race as far as possible. Before we talk about Europe.

      With or without silverware, there are so many positives to take from the season, and that's what we should focus on, not spitting blood because a bit part, injury prone player, voluntarily exchanged the chance of a title challenge for mid table mediocrity.

      I honestly think City will win this match comfortably KK. No prisoners after their beating in mid week. Not seen betting yet but might have s dabble  ;D
