It hasn't even been a week yet 😁

 I love the Christmas fixture schedule. We've had an October's worth of football in a week.

bit of a fortunate one for Fred that.

Would have been very harsh if given. Had his hands behind his back until he hit the floor. Ball was whipped into him from point blank distance. Handball rule really needs tweaking.

Agree it’s borderline. I thought they’d consider that he brings his arm out from behind his back. Had the ref given it i’m sure it wouldn’t have been overturned however.

Rules are definitely a joke. That’s not a hand ball, but if it skims an attacking players hand in that scenario and his team bury it - that doesn’t count.

Yeah I hate that inconsistency. If looked at it like that, it was a nailed on pen. 

As for Fred, his hands only came out for balance. You can't slide in with both hands behind your back. That was impossible to avoid.

I think City really miss Kompany.  Whether his legs could have handled another season I'm not sure but I'm pretty sure they wouldn't have thrown away so many needless points if they could patch him up at various times of the season.  Guardiola teams do sometimes get to the point where they are a bit soft through the spine and he then decides it's time to move on.

Pereira basically just kicked Sterling there, it was more violent than just deliberately tripping him up.  In my book that would be a red.

Hate stuff like that. Player dives in the box and its 'disgraceful cheating, no respect'.

Deliberately hack down a player and its 'taking one for the team'

Wan Bissaka is an excellent defender. Had Sterling in his pocket all game.

Was utterly putrid against us. He's dodgy, can be good, can be poor. Sterling has been absolutely awful.

The great Guardiola out thought and out classed by OGS, hilarious.

His arrogance in not caring about proper defenders coming home to roost.

Wasted 150 mil on the likes of Stones, Walker and Danilo

He thinks he is too clever when it comea to defence. From his signings Laporte looks a rare top centre back. Chygrinsky FFS 😂😂

I think he has a touch of the micah Richards about him, great going forward but defending he often relies on his pace to get him out of trouble 

Richards problem was that was a flaw to his game when he was 18 and was still there 10 years later when he was robbing a living

TAA is capable of some ropey defending too but is so good going forward its never mentioned

Throwing it out there - the son goal wasn't that good... 

80 yards, surrounded by about 7 players but only 2 of them made any kind of attempt to tackle him, it's awful defending, seen comments "its like weah" not having that
