    Anyone worried that Son has put himself in the shop window for the mega rich clubs ala Bale's breakthrough season in the CL? he has been quite simply superb.

    The lack of reality in the media coverage and the excusing of what was a completely immature pair of games with crappy tactics from City is absolute brick.

    Said it before in other threads, City were beaten, not unlucky.

    - First game, defensive, no tempo, obviously playing for draw or 1-0, failed to score, had less shots on goal, left with a loss and no away goal.
    - Second game, got out the blocks early, scored one. At that point, control the game, keep the possession, slowly push us back and the goals would have come, instead schoolboy stuff, concede another two goals in less than 10 minutes. Even in second half they never controlled the game, they had us on the rack at times, but they were always exposed. Stats show we actually had 5 shots on target in 2nd half (vs. their 4), 7 on target all game vs. their 8.

    Honestly have no idea what Pep was thinking, an open game with space when away goals count (and you have none) and the opposition has Son, Lucas, Dele & Eriksen. Sorry he may be a great manager, and they may be a great side, but luck didn't do them in, stupid tactics, poor decisions and individual errors did.

    We deserved to go through on basis of the two legs, not them (regardless of narrative)

    No, because I honestly don't think Sonny has any interest in leaving (I'd put him in the loyal category) and Levy would make anyone pay out the ass for it.

    So was my response! Do you think I’d go to the effort adding that quote bit for anything other than a cheap laugh?!

    I hate this insinuation that we were somehow lucky because of VAR.

    It was never a handball for the goal, what’s he supposed to do with his arms, cut them off? A pen was given against Rose for having his arms away from his body, so you can’t then pénalisé someone for having their hands touching their body. That’s a Goal 100 times out of 100 and shouldn’t have even been looked at.

    Their “goal”, after the excellant use of VAR, was clearly offside, so again the correct decision.

    In fact the only failures of VAR were a dubious penalty against us in the first leg and Fernandinho not being sent off.

    Agree with the sentiments, Son has actually been more committed publically to us that Kane, who on paper has the most connection to the club as he doesn’t chuck in the old caveat of ‘as long as the club matches my ambitions’ and Levy tieing him up on a deal pre he military service issue showed commitment from us whilst his sale value was limited (which now looks a master stroke like the Bale sell on payment when Soton where struggling) I think if any top club looked for a 20 goal a season man, who can play a couple of positions with a good injury record and doesn’t give the manager any trouble on or off the pitch he’d have to be near the top of the list so hopefully he doesn’t have an influential agent who will make him feel like his global ‘brand’ needs to have his wages trebled and feature for Madrid or Barca.

    Not just because it went for us against a doped team but my faith in football was restored when the ref was given two opportunities to make a call in favour of City at home and made the fair decision. I still think the Rose pen was a ridiculous decision but if the rules have changed and it’s the same for everyone I can live with it if we get consistency.

    I do feel that it should be used for retrospective acts of violence along with gameplay decisions though.

    Justice has been done!

    VAR will always fail in subjective calls
    It’s great for like calls
    Right know though I’d like us to sign VAR to play Centre mid

    Yeah, still quite a few unknowns yet, not least whether we'll finish in the top 4. One negative that can already be taken into consideration is that Russia, as the 6th ranked country, have an automatic place for their league champions in Pot 1. Whichever team that is will have a lower ranking than us, so that effectively pushes us down one place.

    If we made it to the finals, who would you rather get? Liverpool or Barcelona?
