City look a shadow of themselves atm. Pep throwing the towel in, it's not looking good. Not sure I fancy City to beat Woolwich in the two games anyway. Maybe internally he is telling the squad fuck the league and domestic cups lets give everything for the CL this season.
This seems to be a bit of a narrative amongst non city fans here, bit of a worry if that’s what the outsiders are thinking.
I interpreted Pep post Rag match as saying: look we are playing at OT, we expect to be cheated here but this just different level and I am so pissed of by how blatant it is I don't care about winning the PL anymore. But as it is expected, we should have accepted it and stayed focused and not conceded the second. We reset and go again against Spurs.
Pep never gives the players an easy way out (like Klopp's moaning). He never gives them an excuse or a reason not to turn up, no matter what shafting has taken place.
We have to play Arsenal twice, after tonight we are only half way through the season, there are 20 matches to play, Arsenal are favorites but they have to keep going, they can be caught, go catch them, my guess is that is the message being given to the players.
