Cruyff14 why don't you actually respond to Adl9798 calling you out on your hypocrisy instead of responding with accusations?
I don't recall moomba telling anyone to "please stop" recently.
Nice and easy for you WC. I even bolded, underlined it and made it italic so you could see it nice and clear :)

That's got nothing to do with you having a go at me for doing something that a City fan also did but nice try. You still haven't explained your double standards and don't look like doing so. Carry on, this is rather amusing.

And while we're at it, the same person telling someone to stop clearly has no idea about what choking is, yet tries to lecture everyone who counters his argument with logic, and return with more ********.

So that's the difference.
You've genuinely lost me. What does Zidane telling Faith to stop posting things like #LFCUCLDestiny have to do with Zidane and moomba having banter over the potential for meltdowns in here if either of our clubs failed to qualify for the CL from our current respective positions? Does moomba telling Faith to 'try harder' upset you too?

Fair play, you've obviously got an issue with Zidane which I wasn't aware of, but from my perspective there was no difference between what he and moomba posted and you're overreacting a tad. Just my 2c.

All good, I shouldn't have gotten worked up over something so trivial lol.


Back on the top 4 race I can see a slight glimmer of hope for you guys if West Brom pick up a point against City. Watford away on the final day could be a tricky one for City. Can see you guys winning your final 2 games quite easily although GD won't come into it.

I think City will finish 3rd, it's up to us to finish the job against Boro

If Dortmund sneaks in to 3rd then I believe we'd be seeded for the qualifiers so that'd be cool

None of Watford, West Brom or Middlesbrough have form, or anything tangible to play for aside from pride at this stage. I'd expect both Liverpool and City to win all 3, but stranger things have happened.

City's trip to Watford is the only match where there is even a tiny chance of a win not occurring. Actually arsenals match against Everton is the hardest one left for the three contenders. If I was a bookie I'd offer odds of 20/1 for Arsenal to finish top 4 from here.

I think Arsenal have a very bad record v Koeman from memory but they have nothing to play for so may roll over.

I think moomba would leave England out of embarrassment if City managed to cock it up from here somehow. Would be the greatest choke and meltdown of all time league history with Pep as manager and 270m net spent over the last 2 years!

Please please make it happen !!
I don't think you really understand what a choke is.

If we missed out on top 4, I'd cop the slaughtering from opposition supporters and the media and probably be more intent on seeing us prove them wrong next season. Ultimately I'll look back on those months when we next win something and know that the win was made sweeter because of it.

Unlike a lot, I have no problem seeing my side in the Europa League. It can be a lot of fun.

'Try harder' incoming.
Try harder is reserved for those that make the same joke over and over again. WC is a poster that makes the odd troll. FAITH is a troll that makes the odd post.

If you're going to specialise I think you are obliged to at least try to do it well.

Imagine smashing out well over 70 points and missing out on CL....


Yep, we were the first ones to cop that under AVB with a 72 point 5th placing in 2013. Everton achieved that very same feat the next season.

All down to the final game, City only need a point to guarantee top 4 and a win for 3rd. Win for Liverpool and they guarantee top 4 as well, anything less and a win for us and we swoop in.

We could do it with 75 this season, madness.
