Good Luck Citeh today

Post by RalphCoatesComb » Sat May 18, 2019 10:27 am

A weird one after all the names I've called their players, manager and supporters but, I hope that Citeh do it today for the Domestic Treble.

The fact that I've got a Pony riding on the game also helps but with "My Little Pony" on their backs, they'll struggle ;)

I'll be hoping Watford score first, to make it a bit more entertaining.

How anyone could want Man city to win is beyond me, unless there is a bet involved.

It would do nothing for the game if they won.

I actually forgot the final was today.

I'm not sure if that's a comment about me or the FA Cup itself.

Creating history. The domestic treble has never been done before.

There will still be a few United fans on here that call Pep a fraud though.

Neither really, more like football in general.

I only found out half an hour ago when I saw Guy Mowbray trying to big it up.

Would you support Rovers if they were in the same position?

In the Prem there's no doubt that Guardiola is brilliant, in Europe though he's been found wanting in recent times and is a long way short of winning the CL.

I hope Watford really Sheikh them up, for Pep’s moody post-match interview alone.

Sadly, I think it unlikely.

A long way as in an inch offside or a penalty miss?

A bet is involved but it is a North West club making history. Some of their attacking play is a joy to watch, with or without Claret tinted glasses.

Am I the only one who finds City boring?
You have to appreciate their ability to get the ball back quickly and their possession football normally ends up with a goal attempt but I just can’t get excited watching them.
Still fancy them for a 3-0 today but I’ll be hoping for Watford.

Its a shame Wolves arent in the final as think theyd have given City a few problems and made a good game of it. As it is think City will win without having to exert themselves too much.

Hope City do win as prefer them as a club to Watford and couldn't give a sh*t what financial backing they have nowadays

Should Watford win they would go straight into the group stage of the Europa League with Arsenal. Manchester United would enter into the 2nd qualifying round of that competition.

Exactly the reason I want Watford to win. Cant wait to see United playing a qualifier against the outer mongolian league cup runners up when they should be on a money spinning tour to China

Rubbish to be fair, how many times does the best side in Europe actually win the Champions League? There is simply no argument when it comes to league football, consistent games every week over a season. Cup football is based largely on luck of the draw, 1 off games and luck in the big decisions. Look at the final, Spurs v Liverpool, neither have won a Premier League title, so how can they be considered the best side in Europe? they can't.

If we didn't draw the toughest possible side in each round of Europa League qualifying, we'd have likely made the group stage. (even with Dyche's atrocious cup record)

Aren’t City being outed for cheating. All the money they have means to use it they have had to do some financial practices that UEFA don’t like. How can we be lauding it a out a club that are a out to be branded cheats? How valid will their achievement be?

They are so good because they can afford to have 3 world class players for every position. Be more ridiculous if they didn’t win everything.

I'd say the fact that Real Madrid have won the European cup/Champions league 13 times defines their history more than any number of La Liga titles.
