That sounds interesting. If only there was an option to listen to the crowd only without the inane tv commentary

Looking at the late Sakho chance for West Ham, I am pretty sure that Arnautovic stands on Mangala’s ankle as they tussle which sends the defender to the ground. He was in a physical duel but was unlucky I think - had he been able to keep his feet he may have been able to do more to stop Arnautovic crossing the ball. He was clearly injured afterwards.

That doesn't fit the narrative.

I'm sick of haven't to sit through ratboy commentating on City games. His overall thoughts aren't loaded with bias but it's the little snide remarks he makes, as an example, a completely innocuous challenge from Otter where he went for the ball but was slightly late and tripped his man and that ratboy scum is calling for a booking. That was one of numerous examples where I found myself cursing him.

I don't think it's right that we have to listen to a died in the wool rag commenting on us. My wife got Sky in for me last year as a present but I'll be cancelling now and will let them know why.



I know what you mean, Dub, but I just ignore it as best I can. I like my League and cricket as well, plus the NFL and occasional Gaelic football to carry on.

There is a way of linking DAB radio commentary via a laptop rather than the TV commentary if you're interested. I'll try and find instructions if you are.


Cheers CITK but no need as I've just got off the phone with Sky there, I cancelled my subscription and told them why.

I'll go back to streaming off NBCSN or Bein.

It seemed to me on the head on replay that Mangala tripped himself up, but maybe was caught prior to that?

As you say, Skoorb, when he picked himself up, he was limping for a few seconds.
It just seemed like a carbon copy of the first one on one chance Wolves had in the League Cup.

^which as I argued at the time was also a foul but then I thought in the rag/arsenal game that Lukaku fouled Koscielny first but different rules seem to apply when it's a defender behind a striker as opposed to a striker behind a defender.

Mangala’s problem is confidence, in that situation he needs to play the ball first time back to his keeper with his right foot but he seems not to trust his right when he's running full pelt and so is giving the opponent time to muscle in as he tries to get the ball on his left.

It's a bit of a catch 22, as the only way to build that confidence is with regular playing time but the fact that he's a bag of nerves whenever he plays means starting him is a risk, so he'll likely never get that regular run of games.

I think the main problem with Tyler is he is bezzie mates with Neville. He cannot be unbiased whilst he commentating on City games alongside that tosser.

Agreed Rising, I can tolerate him when he's accompanied by anyone other than the snivelling bootlicker.

That looks nice.

Although I was miffed when I picked up the Times to find their back page headline reading "City's 'Fergie Time' Boast" when in fact nothing said by Guardiola was in any way boastful. His exact words: -

"I heard about the Fergie Time. What we have shown in the last [four] games is we never give up. If we can take something from the Fergie Time, it is a pleasure".

Errr. The headline in no way reflects his comments but then why should we expect anything other than a paper trying to create tension in the build up to the derby by putting a [wrong] slant on things?

I wouldn't mind but "Fergie time" was time added on to injury time.

The only goal that we've scored this season that falls under that description is Sterling's winner at Bournemouth.

Spot on Skoorb - there is enough riding on this particular derby without the media needing to make it out to be anything more than it is. Just some jobbing hack I imagine - it's not even alliteration ffs!

News coming out that the rags will not be appealing Carlton's red, probably because they risk getting an additional game ban for being frivolous.
Also, it appears Pep will not receive any sanction for his to-do with Redmond. He will, however, be reminded of his responsibilities.

Also hearing Michael Oliver will be derby ref.
