- Soccerball Goooaaaaal! 2018/19 season
Great game for the neutral last night ..I never thought I would say this but I’m starting to feel a little bit of sympathy for Leeds ( traditionally we Mags can’t stand them )..are they destined never to return ?Posted 9 months ago
Besides which it would be the closest thing to a ” Derby” match we will get for a good few years …😁
Speaking of Derby ..great fight back they have some good young players ..
Any predictions for today then? Should be a belter! I think Watford will really give City a game, though I can’t quite see them doing a Wigan.
I’m a big fan of Troy Deeney. Just seen him interviewed and he was saying how much he liked and respected Kompany. I imagine those two are going to have a right old ding dong this afternoonPosted 9 months ago
It is strange the admiration and respect that Kompany has garnered, as a person not just as a player, from so many within the game. I can’t recall anyone else ever being spoken about like that before.
Sane left out of the starting line up again today, unfortunately I think that’s him gone in this transfer window now. He has suffered this season from De Bruyne’s absence, I don’t think the other city midfielders understand the runs he makes as well, and he hasn’t done quite enough without De Bruyne to justify his current contract demands. I hope I am wrong, because he can be a magical player, and a potential balon d’or winner IMO.Posted 9 months ago
Kompany is a very intelligent and eloquent man. Hardly qualities over-represented in modern football. He’s been very outspoken about issues such as the homeless problem in Manchester. And has put considerable amounts of his own money where his mouth is.
He’s also a bloody brilliant player and has been an amazing captain for City. He’s a Cantona style talisman for themPosted 9 months ago
I put a couple of quid on them this morning at 14/1. Thought it was worth a punt. They’re a good squad
Mrs Binners has a fiver on Wigan beating city 6 years ago. The odds were massive. You should have seen her the last few minutes of the game when city had them under siege 😂
Edit: just asked her and she won £165 off a fiver betPosted 9 months ago
Great players and captains don’t always make great managers, but I do suspect Vinny will be. I had hoped he would stay within the city group and be prepared for management from within. But I think he wants to prove himself and develop his own managerial identity, before his triumphant homecoming a few years down the line.Posted 9 months agohodgyndMember
Well ..bugger all of that ..the big news for me today is that Ashley has reportedly agreed to ( finally ) sell the club to the cousin of Sheikh Mansour ( Man City )for £ 350mPosted 9 months ago
There have been so many false dawns that I really don’t know if I should believe this ..but if its true ..Let the good times roll!😁RicBSubscriber
I’m still reeling from watching the Utd Legends game vs Bayern Munich (who were very good sports to do it!). Heartbreaking to be reminded how good the Utd team was back then compared to the utter sh*te they have now. Jaap Stam would be better on his own than Smalling and Jones together 🙂 A point which Ole made quite clearly and might wish he hadn’t…
Plus – Beckam wtf?!! That lad could still play on the right wing for Utd; he’s probably fitter than half the current first team! And those pinpoint cross-field passes were as good as anything I’ve seen in the prem this yearPosted 9 months ago
