Just been looking at this

http://www.thefa.com/football-rules-governance/discipline/suspensio...

Otter is just one yellow away from suspension and Fernandinho is two away. Looking at our upcoming fixtures my fear is one or both being suspended for the derby. The league cup game against Leicester is the one where a suspension for either would least impact us.

Also interesting to note that not only are we playing the best football in the land and all the world, we're also the dirtiest team. In the Premier League.

I have noticed recently when watching our games I've winced more frequently at some of our tackling, so it doesn't surprise me.

It surprises me, fair enough we're no shrinking violets and we are guilty of some cynical fouling to stop counters but when you see we have double the cautions that Tottenham and Arsenal have and when you consider some of the sides that have a more physical approach like West Brom, Burnley or the rags it raises eyebrows.

I do think that given the speed with which we press to try and regain the ball that this may play a part in committing more fouls........but I also think that consstency is a big issue with opponents such as WBA and recently Wolves being offered greater latitude in respect of fouls which did/did not attract bookings. It's as if "well, City's opponents don't have the ball as much so we'll give them a little leeway as they have to try harder to get it back".

good point about both Otamendi & Fernandinho's proximity to a suspension. We will need them for the derby.

I looked at this issue and the FA website a couple of weeks ago to see where we were.
At that stage we didn't have anyone close, obviously that's now changed.

The frustration, as has been pointed out before, is that yellows can't be appealed. However, I've got to say that most of the games I've seen live or on TV I haven't had an issue with the decision.

My issue lies with consistency more than anything.

For example, Walker got a yellow for kicking the ball away against West Brom but Gibbs didn't get booked for the exact same thing.

Jesus got booked for a show of dissent yet the Polish lad playing midfield for West Brom didn't get booked for the exact same thing.

Spurs and Arsenal’s low tally surprise me too because they both play high defensive lines that are susceptible to counter attacks, perhaps they don't put that cynical type tackle in when being countered, I haven't watched them enough to say one way or the other tbf.

Consistency within a particular game....twas ever thus.

Otter picked up his fifth today, Vinnie ready to play after the break?

Could be. Said to be nearly ready to return. At least Otamendi has gotten it out of the way before the derby
