And what’s Foden playing like. I’ve not seen much of his as I avoid watching citeh. How does he compare with Grealish?

Been a brilliant game to watch. Villa are a fab watch. No idea how the City goal wasn’t offside.

Can someone explain why City's goal wasn't given offside? How can Rodri not be interfering with play when he sets the goal up? Was miles offside.

Because Mings had touched the ball and therefore played him onside before he got involved in the play, at least thats what I saw.

That is easily the worst VAR decision I have seen so far and that's some accolade!

he was massively offside, Mings brings the ball down knowing there is nobody legally around him. Disgusted with that

Surely Mings should know that if he touches the ball, anyone in an offside position will no longer be so? Confused...

Apparently onside because Mings played the ball, so he's offside but technically onside.
What if the assistant referee had raised the flag. Offside or onside?

City should have won by at least 5 goals as they did against us, however, their finishing was nowhere near as good in spite of having 9 more attempts with 3 more on target that they did against us. They had the same amount of possession (69%) tonight and had 10 more corners and committed 10 fewer fouls than against us.
Villa had 2 more shots than we had but had 3 more on target, 2 less corners and committed 5 more fouls and were very luckyto get away with 2 cautions.

Yes, Villa were okay but they weren't as good as they are being made out to be,in spite of Grealish and McGinn managing to con a few free kicks.

The offside decision first came up a few years back when Kane scored at Anfield.
It’s ridiculous. How can the defender be sure if the attacker is offside, so he plays the ball. If he left it and they weren’t offside he get his arse kicked out of the club.
Pen pushers doing their very best to ruin this wonderful sport.

I had a cracking pair of flares roundabout the time TC played for us,fit like a glove round the ball area and a tight little pert arse,shite pockets in flares though two slits in the waistband.....absolutely shite when in your out in the middle of winter in a Ben Sherman and flares........but nowhere to warm your hands 😊
