    Citeh 1 Leeds 2

    Did I particularly want Leeds to win? No.

    Did I particularly want all the pundits (who know everything) to be wrong. Oh yes!

    Normally, the next opponent of Citeh would fear the backlash.
    Thank god that opponent is not Spurs

    Leeds have proven that City are fallible and we’ve been a bit of a bogey team for them the last few seasons. All hope is not lost for the final.

    But it’s the hope that gets you in the end.

    City picked a dumbass team selection, as they're more interested in the midweek game.
    Lots of extremely expensive reserves chucked together fairly thoughtlessly. Bald fraud.

    Yes, no doubt.
    In the game I wanted neither team to win, this was the best outcome.
    Pep's arrogance might be rewarded by them doing a Devon Lock.
    You never know.

    What a moron. Headbutting an opponent as you leave the pitch for half-time? How dumb can you get?
    Wait, Morais is his teammate? Oh...

    I hoping that Levy decides to reprise the sacking of the manager during the game...and Mourinho tries to enter into the dressing room at half time and is excluded by security....and sent packing from the stadium, crying "This is not special".






    It's more likely than us winning, after all.

    Does this also include a scene where we are 4-0 down at half time and Winks has finished the tunnel from the dressing room for our escape when all of a sudden Hugo says " come on lads we can win this " and Dele scores with a bicycle kick in the 97th min and we win 4-5

    The club went to **** in 2006...the year he went.
    For 2 seasons Charlton fans complained about Charlton "only" finishing mid table. That pushed him into leaving at the end of the 2005/06 season.

    They were relegated the next season and have spent the last 14 years bouncing between the Championship and league 1.

    Yes I know I keep banging on about loaning players to teams in the same league, but it's just wrong. Lingard is the obvious example but there's been many. Think of it like this, sure they're not playing for their parent club but they kind of are. Let's say that Lingard's goal gets WetSpam the win over Leicester. This effectively works in favour of ManU, as it increases the gap between them (Lingard's parent club) and a team that might otherwise be competing against them. Since loanees can't play against their parent club obviously, it just isn't right. It also has given WetSpam a number of points they otherwise wouldn't have had, but that's not my main problem with the system.

    Agreed. Either they play against their parent club too, or they don't play against anyone.

    I think the real question is why wasn’t he bloody well doing this for his parent club?

    Because all in all he’s pretty ****, he’s just enjoying a very bright purple patch.

    You lot are laughing though really, he wouldn’t have fetched anything more than £5m in the summer, now you’ll likely pocket north of £25m what with West Ham being desperate to keep him and Goons supposedly interested.

    "He's taken us as far as he can and it's time to find someone to take us to the next level."
    A cautionary tale for clubs that don't have massive resources not to get too carried away.

    I don't agree with Leicester's decision to drop 3 players for being naughty.What did it achieve? Gave West Ham 3 points and the chance for Hammers etc to catch up.....Oh!....and pee off their fans who have paid lots of lolly to watch them this season and now possibly lose their CL place......!?
    Hit the players where it hurts.......in their wallets!
