Quite simply another game. We have to keep winning if we want to win the league. That said, I'd rather we fucking spanked them than win one nil. I cannot abide these scruffy cunts

Pep doesn’t completely rule out Erling for tomorrow. Says he’s improving. One more training session and ‘ we’ll see how he feels’. Doctors say ‘two or three weeks’ out for Phil.

I think he will play some part tomorrow maybe bring him on second half if he needs to, well I am hoping he will like NT said earlier we really need to smash these horrible bastards

Don't know how Haaland really is but it's not worth taking a risk with him.

Agree with this. We have enough quality without him. Of course he (and Foden) will be missed but we should be looking at the chumps league games and not risking anyone. Play Alvarez with Mahrez / Bernie and Grealish

At the very least there’s no point in letting Liverpool know whether Haaland or Alvarez will start
this early.

Genuine question.

Which defender has been the most successful for us this season ?

I would go for Ake . Against the Arse for example, he had Saka under control. He's been Mr.Consistency. Young Akanji has done well too, considering it takes time to 'Bed in'

I'm just thinking outloud for tomorrow and which back four/three/ five Pep might go with.

I think Alvarez is the perfect forward for us in this game.We will spank them if we go 2 goals up .
THEY SAY SWEARING IS DUE TO A LIMITED VOCABULARY. I KNOW THOUSANDS OF WORDS, BUT I STILL PREFER "FUCK OFF" TO "GO AWAY"

I wonder if RCW Fabinho will start ( red card walking).

I'd say he will definitely start - but may not finish if we boss the game

I doubt he will even get a yellow, much less a red.

Ake has been great, Akanji is a fanny, good cover but not a starter for me. Since Dias come back we looked more assured at the back.

No Haaland arriving at the Etihad which is not a surprise.
