Unai could of played this B team in the tin pot against Ajax home & away and won. Maybe we would have had our big weapons fresh for this one.

We played well first half, second half at 2-1 we had a couple of lightening breakaways with Diarby and Zaniola which both broke down on the edge of the city area. Then they got the 3rd and it was game over.

Why call it the tin pot, when we have a chance of winning something for the first time in 28 years?

Also Kamara got injured against Man Utd, Ramsey aggravated his injury against Luton, McGinn got sent off against Spurs, Watkins injured against Wolves. Martinez goes down with a bug tonight, for all we know Torres, Bailey and Tielemans the same. None of it had anything to do with the Ajax game.

I really wish that the commentators wouldn't gush over Man City as if they don't have 115 charges against them.
Me too it really boils my piss the way they talk about their "achievements" as if it's been totally earned. I turned the sound off after an hour. 'Er indoors walked in and asked why I was sitting in silence. I said that I couldn't listen to two blokes having multiple organisations over a bunch of cheating bastards. She looked very perplexed and went to bed.

Best league in the world my big fat arse. When they inevitably win it again this year itíll be 6 out of 7, all bought (apart from Foden anyway) and probably whilst breaking rules in the process. What a load of old wank, the only good thing is itís not Man Utd, an even bigger bunch of ******.

Well done Olsen. Didn't really put a foot wrong and didn't deserve to be exposed by the Zaniolo Secondary School defending of the set piece.

Clearly Unai sacrificed this match however this type of pick and choose normally didnít work in sport. I will now judge him after the game on Saturday. Win that and itís all good, draw or a loss and you have fucked up Unai.

He didn't jump out of its way, he was moving before it was stuck. I would need to check with other walls but I'm guessing our end players jump out to try to protect against the whip around the wall, and Foden knew they did and gambled on it.

Remember the old days when there always a mid week fixture at the start of the season? So you'd get 3 games the first week of the season?

They should bring that back as it is more of an even field in August. By April weeks like this will always favour scum clubs who have cheated through financial doping and have squads that can cope.

We have two massive games next up.  Beat Brentford and we pretty much guarantee Europa football at the very least.  Then comes the quarter final against Lille.  Unai did the right thing by putting Pau, Tielemans and Bailey on the bench.  Along with McGinn, they will all be back in the team on Saturday and for next Thursday.  Rogers is a bit fitter and better for the experience too. 

Torres and Bailey have played one game after a two week break. Not playing them was chucking the game, basically.

Do people seriously think Emery would "sacrifice" a league game at this point in the season by just not playing the best players? A win tonight would have put us more than 3 points clear of Spurs, cancelling out their game in hand. Even a draw would have put us back to 3 points clear, and maintained our superior goal difference, which would also have taken away  their potential advantage slightly.

Yeah, he was fine. I was going to joke about what the fuck he was doing for Fodens 2nd and 3rd but not really in a jokey mood.
Heís getting better finally, and more than a bit.

Iíll be very happy with the tin pot as you call it.
I donít think anyone missed a game as a result of the Ajax games and I could just imagine the reaction if Emery had done that and weíd have gone out.
Heís managed the squad superbly this season and is a world class coach so Iíll back his judgement.
