Once again there was nothing of any great interest to post from the away fans. The pre match thread wasn’t started until this morning. Its just the usual ‘free hit’ type of thing and the expected thrashing that we see every week. The best pre match thread is the discussion about how to use e-tickets to get into the ground and how they will need to get there early, takes me back!
COME ON CITY!!!
Referee: David Coote

Collins neves kilman
Semedo nunes lemina ran
Sarabia raul cunha
And the rest…
They're not quite at their imperious best but you feel if we go there to be positive and got toe-to-toe with them, we'll be picked off. Need to look for inspiration from Everton's recent draw there.
With no FA Cup 4th Round game there's now 2 weeks (urgh) between the City and Liverpool games, no need to rest players just go all out.
Might stop City scoring if we play a 7-2-1 although the 1 is a token gesture for the fans.
Manchester City have conceded two goals in their last two games, so while they are a very good team, there are frailties in their defence. Of course it will be a difficult game, but we are a better team now than the one City steamrolled earlier in the season.
Still struggling to see how we play cohesively without Raul.
Avoid an 8 goal loss and we'll be still out of the bottom 3!
Get there in plenty of time. I imagine the use of NFC e-tickets will blow the mind of some of our fanbase. I saw people tapping their paper tickets against the reader at last night’s game.
