Ok we lost the game but the result could and should have been boosted with more goals, only Joe Hart was actually stretched to make two brilliant saves, one in each half, the first he palmed away and the other he stopped with his feet.

Both teams hit the woodwork, City won the Corner count 8-2 but both sides made 13 attempts at goal with Juve having more on target 5-2.

City should have taken the lead as Fernandinho with a great opportunity blasted over instead of burying it, the result was that Juve went up field carved City up like lattice pastry and a scored a good goal with city shouting for a foul on Otamendi, but this fell on deaf ears and to be fair it was never going to be disallowed by a homer of a ref in Dr. Brych.

The good Dr. booked three city players two in the same incident, which the writer believes wasn't a foul in the first place, but it was not the first or last confusing decision by the referee.

Aguero came off for Sterling as Pellgrini continues Sergio's comeback. with Delph ealier replacing Fernandinho who had been booked and probably would have seen red with this ref. Disaster struck after Harty had made his second telling save, as he came off with a suspected hamstring injury which almost certainly put him out of Saturdays match and possibly a few others as well as City injury crisis both worsens and gets better with Silva and bony nearing full fitness.

Sterling should have equalised, but as Fifthcolumnblue said in the match day thread, had we someone who could cross, we would have won this game.

the good news is that we did put up a good show but were let down by some poor finishing and crossing.

if Juventus win their last match they win the group and we can look forward once again to meeting Barcelona

If juve lose and we win, we look forward to getting PSG, so no matter what we do UEFA will stitch us up again.

Hart's injury is all we need, we're becoming the new Arsenal.


As to the game itself, a good showing against a wily opponent. On another night Fernandinho buries that early chance and its us countering Juve for the remainder of the game instead of the other way round.

Referee was turd, bought everything that Juve threw at him, that Lichsteiner fella in particular was a dab hand at conning the ref, not to mention that little shitbag Dybala, but back to Lichsteiner, the size of him to be hitting the turf the way he was every time he felt a City player's breath was embarrassing.

Have to say I'm impressed with Delph, hasn't made a brilliant impact when coming off the Berti in the last two but hasn't looked out of his depth either which surprised me a little.

'Lattice pastry' - nice!

Looks like we lost because of poor finishing and the ref making the wrong decisions - business as usual?

No Kenny that was a factor, but when crossing we could not pass the first defender, but there goal led a charmed life at times.

Going a goal down was the killer, because they just dropped back and defended their lead and they know how to defend, but we rattled them.

Had we had a full compliment of players we may well have won it.

Pellegrini says that Joe Hart has a had a back problem for most of the week and it is a wait and see to see to what extent the injury is.

Big Willy needs to stand up and do his job.

It seems you can't criticise a ref on here without assumptions being made that you're blaming the ref for the result.

I disagree BD, I don't think the ref's decisions had an effect on the result, I thought the decision not to call a foul on Otamendi could have gone either way, ie if that had been Aguero, I am sure that he would have blown for a foul.

You pointed two culprits on the Juve side who conned the ref and in this he was at fault, but that was Juve all night going down at the touch of a hat and I think refs should be aware of these tactics going into a match.

Refs don't know their man, a prime example of that was Aguero was booked for diving against Southampton and we all know Aguero is probably the last man to go down

Disagree with what Buzz? I'm not saying the ref affected the result, I'm just saying he was shit.

Oh and that wasn't a foul on Otamendi, he just **cked up. God help Mangala if it'd been him.

I know, that's why I never criticise the refs - they've a tough job only made harder by the continuing cheating of players. It sometimes seems as though we've the whole world against us what with UEFA plotting to ruin us, people kicking Silva's ankle, homer refs when we're playing away etc - amazing that we've done as well as we have!

Still think we'll win the title, it's a pretty average PL and there for the taking.

I've a tough job made harder by incompetent idiots around me. Does this mean I should be immune from criticism?

Refs are fair game, just like everyone else.

Will Koemann do a 'Klopp' and play with a 5 man midfield, pressing high ? If so, should/will MP make the midfield adjustments to cope with that ?
Any positive news on Joe Hart ? The prospect of (Goby) Cabellero in goal doesn't really bear thinking about.

In the end Pellers had no choice of CB's, but he must have known what was coming against Liverpool and thwarted Klopp, perhaps he did, because it appears he had a plan and the lads didn't stick to it and by the time they did it was too late.

Last night was a case of not taking your chances when they come along
