    An example to us all.

    If Brighton win on Sunday we could get an extra 3 days rest over City ... swings and roundabouts

    Premier League Fixtures Season 2018/19

    The Brighton game seems like it can get moved to the 5:30pm or 7:45pm slot on Saturday that we've seen used this season.

    5:30pm seems like the BT kick off time so I wouldn't be surprised to see that Brighton game used for the 7;45pm slot similar to what we had against Wolves away this season.

    What seems to be clear to me is regardless of if it's Brighton or Crystal Palace that we open with, it'll be a nighttime game even if it's played of a weekend. Expect the first couple of games to be under the lights lads and ladies

    Yeah, hard draw and all that. But to me the CL is all about playing new teams from around Europe, not bloody Man Shitty for the 3rd and 4th time in a season. Its boring, for a start.

    Stop fucking moaning it’s a CL quarter, one leg will be under the lights at WHL, and City will bring a massive noisy contingent.

    It’s going to be magic.

    So what if we play them every season...not in the CL we don’t.
    The reward is a semi against Ajax or Juve.

    This is our season, in all it’s glory. Try and remember that when thinking it’s all shit. The CL is a massive chink of light for us, I don’t care who we get from here on in.

    If we’r complaining about playing City in the QF of the CL they we might as well pack this sport up, tell the FA we are withdrawing from the Premier league next season because there’s no point, and tell UFEA thanks but no thanks, if we’r going to draw hard teams in the CL then we are not intrested, just give our slot to someone else.....
    No draw was going to be easy, Liverpool away in Porto second leg.....watch this space!!

    Read this some moment ago... Made me realise how proud we should all be for supporting this magnificent club:

    So Spurs will play City three times in just eleven days.

    The football club that is labelled (or laughed at) for wanting to do things the "right way" (rightly or wrongly), has been rebuilt from the bottom to the top, is about to move into one of the world's best stadiums that actually has to be paid for and with a team now competing at the highest level that craves success.........

    vs

    The football club that won fuck all for 35 years, even dropping down to the third tier during that time, got lucky with one of the richest men on the planet and has managed to circumvent FFP rules via sponsorships, is about two get a two window transfer ban, plays in a stadium that was funded by the taxpayer and has, quite literally, bought every trophy it has won since.........

    Being the obvious underdogs means that our Champions League expectations are now even lower, which might actually be a good thing, as we've all seen what getting giddy does. It makes people like me look silly and gets the team labelled as "bottle jobs!"

    Play with no fear and you just never know what might happen........

    COYS!

    I'll probably be talking myself into Spurs putting on a Nutter-NaylorNutter-Naylor style 7-0 drubbing over City when they come to the NWHL over the next 3 weeks.

    Exactly its the CL.....let’s play Wycombe!

    Not sure why Porto would be an interesting draw, other than they are foreign and people stupidly thinking we’d beat them 7-0 over two legs..we’ve got a glamour tie.

    Call city plastic all you want, it’s irrelevant.
    And write us off at your own peril, gloves are off for this one. Home leg is giving me chills thinking about it.

    If Brighton go out of the FA cup this week and City make it to the semi final, we will almost certainly end up playing Brighton at 12.30pm on the Saturday, with City playing at 17.15pm on the Saturday. (FA CUP SEMI FINAL)

    If the lads cannot get amped for this game in the new stadium - we might as well cancel

    City isn't the same in CL. They beat Schalke 3-2 on last minute away. I know about result at Etihad but Schalke is fucking shit. Just don't concede at home, 0-0 is good as far I'm concered.

    It is funny, who would have thought we would ever be moaning about who we got in the CL quarters haha! mental isn't it, we have come a long way

    People still are a bit funny about us, I did the analysis, our average league position pre Poch since 1950 is 8th, we aren't the colossus some think we should be, our peers Villa and Everton are nowhere near where we are

    City are playing Cardiff at 12:30pm on Sky that afternoon though. I haven't seen anything to suggest that one will be getting changed unless you have seen something that suggests it can and will be?

    So we basically want City to win in the FA Cup this weekend and then Brighton winning would give us a Saturday early doors kick off potentially. Either way we should be getting as much time if not more to revolver for the City game in the Champs League then.

    Cheers Gaz

    While it's nice to have the moral high ground, something to cling on but unfortunately there isn't a trophy for "doing it the right way"
    The media , other fans , the world don't give a fuck . We are all praying for a miracle but our past history in crunch games leaves us with only a small chance of beating the oil men mercenaries .
