Go Burnley
They are quietly climbing the table, didn't even notice them until they showed up in 4th place. Will be interesting after today's games to see where everyone stands. Amazing that they have only scored 16 goals. That defense though.
+2
it's incredible, like you said, they appeared outta nowhere haha
Out of the 5 EPL teams Spurs and Chelsea got toughest games in round of 16. I can see LFC, Manu, and Man City going through. Spurs vs Juve is a tough one but Spurs might pull through. As far as Chelsea I think it is the end of the line in CL. Nothing is guaranteed in football though we will have to see how it goes.
Yep x 5.
Chelsea vs Barca can go either way but our fixture list, we have a good record vs Barca 5W 5D 5L and unbeaten in the last 7 games
Enough incentive for them not to lose focus.. But i do agree it can go either way
Lukaku needs to motivated, those mistakes were pressed set-piece, anyone could make that mistake. As long as he was active trying to make Rashford, martial, or lingard to take his position during counter attack, after clearing a set-piece is team work.

Lukaku can defend set-piece but today was not his day, Manchester United just need to understand that Lukaku is more clinical in goal. I do agree maybe he looks tired because of how Mourinho rely on his strength in defense and attack, every week. I think Mourinho should let him rest for easier games. So, during a Derby he is refreshed and ready.
wrong forum my good friend
+2
I have being watching videos and reading comments here for years. But my silence don't mean I am new to this forum. In fact, I have commented years ago, when I saw the need to. I am focused on evaluating the Manchester United team, and that is my only concern in this forum. 😊😊😊
Then do it in the Manchester United section of the forum.
+4
Ya this forum is only for FootballisCity comments.
+6
Some City fans have been running around taking about City on this forum whole year lol . Don't listen to them @God, as long as it's a valid topic, you can post it here.
+3
Thanks @yaldho 👊👊😈😈😈
+1
Ya that 2nd goal wasn't Lukaku's fault. He simply made a clearence. That ball could have gone anywhere. It unfortunately got deflectrd back and fail on Silva's lap. If u look at the videos up top they want to make it seem like it is his fault.

As far as the other nonsense, feel free to post anywhere. Generally you post here something that is related to the league, other football stuff, or something about more than a specific club. It's not an obligation. It is just a thought to keep in mind.
this is what happens when you don't wanna play football and you put 6 players in defence. Its amusing United fans talking about Gabriel's dive when Lingard and Herrera were so much better at diving. Whether you like it or not but MANCHESTER WILL ALWAYS BE BLUE! We can beat you home or away!!!

14 straight wins? new record? This is the best we will see in the EPL I hope all the fans following the EPL enjoy this to its fullest including United fans, cos there will never be another team like this City team!
+5
you guys have one hell of a record at Old Trafford, thats for sure.
+2
Great win and well deserved...i stlll dont think its the best PL team ever though. Lets judge that end of the season.
f*****g troll.
+3
City are a great team no doubt but not the best PL team ever like @Baz has said
@Yaldho come again? for footballing reasons you should be enjoying what this City team is putting on display, its amazing football, total football you will never see one like this again. Enjoy while it lasts my friend instead of being grumpy.
+2
No EPL team in history has won 14 straight wins plus in a fashion City is doing it with an average of 3+ goals per game how can it not be the best in history if the stats speak otherwise? and it might be more than 14 wins for all we know. None the less the best in the premier league history for sure, and when Mendy comes back from his injury it will only get better
+1
Hmm someone's having a good time lol, but to say there will never be another team like City is going a bit far, look where City has come from, time has a way of producing something unexpected at any given moment, someone else could take over a lower club spend some cash and a few years passes and they break all our records. But I get you're excited for the derby win and that we are the best at this moment, as am I.
+1
Aww look, the first-year City fan has learned about total football and decided to demonstrate his newfound football genius. *clap clap*
+2
Ha, can't argue with anything hes saying. City running away with it.

If City play like they have so far till the end of the season, they will be ONE of best free scoring teams to win the league (I still think Chelsea 09/10 were insane).

City won at the bridge, won at OT, KdB and Silva the new Xavi and Iniesta, amazing football. Envious stuff really.
+4
I couldn't careless about what he is saying. He is trolling and trying to get a reaction of United fans. This is not the city forum. Go gloat in your own forum.
+3
@football is city are you actually asking the united fans to love the city team? That makes zero sense. There is a good reason fans support their teams, win or lose. By your logic the whole world should only follow one team - the one that’s winning at the moment. hope you realize how ridiculous you sound.

Please stop trying to get a reaction out of united fans.
+3
No matter how good United play, I wouldn't love or support them if you paid me, even if we went back to being mid table or lower.
I have nothing personal against City but i would really love for them to bottle it and collapse towards the en of the season just to see the egg cooking on this dudes face.

As SM16 says, you never know what the future will hold. Perhaps a billionaire will invest in another club and take them to new heights even beyon what we've already seen.

Talk about counting chickens before they've hatched.
+9
To the thread starter, I would suggest it sounds much better when neutrals and opposition give praise to flatter City. Self praise to that extent only makes you look like a w****r.
However, at present City certainly look the part. And I do believe United fans deep down know that they're selling their soul, when they argue that they like what they're seeing from their team.
+5
@Deffy I really understand how you feel but I don't think Footballiscity does not represents how the majority of City supporters characters are, at least those supporting before the sucessful era, so to wish us not to win the league and collapse based on one self glorifying City fan would be unfair to the others and Pep for all his work so far.
@North. I don't. We play the second best football in the league. No shame in that. The only thing that hurt my 'soul' is that we are 11 points behind city.
+1
Yaldho - Sorry you guys dont play 2nd best football in the league . Good game management by Jose to secure crucial points and De Gea has kept you guys 2nd in the table. But that does not mean you guys are playing 2nd best football in the league....I'm sure even many united fans would not agree.
+4
Who plays better than us? And I said better not exciting. We have best defense in the league and are the second highest scorers. The only team that can argue is Chelsea but I have watched you guys and you don't play better than us. If you did, you would be above us.

De Gea kept us second in the table? Cmon man. That's like saying Ederson got City 3 points last game. De Gea is part of Man Utd and part of what makes our football. Game management is part of football.

Imo Liverpool pay the most exciting football in the league followed by City. But Liverpool clearly don't play the best football.
+1
IM Liverpool play better football at this point in time...Only reason they are far behind is bad game management by Klopp who seems to going in Wengers direction.

I myself would not pick Chelsea either because we have been poor this season and inconsistent.
How can Liverpool play the better football when their defense is Soo poor? Or you don't consider that into the equation?
United have done well to punish the bad teams. Teams that park the bus get confused when better opposition also park one.
+2
Yaldho - Ok fair point...I agree that they dont have balance
Khessler is somewhat right, but mainly wrong. Our style in big games stands in contrast to our style in every other game. You see that with the goals. I think most people's sample size here is the top 6 matchups where we've tended to sit back and try to play on the counter. Against everyone else, we don't park the bus; we do play with balance, we do play on the counter, but we've had a consistent front 4 (+Pogba when healthy) that's been allowed to attack freely. And for the most part, it's been good, entertaining football.
Okay footytubers, there're 2 big derbies this weekend, so what are your predictions?

Here's mine:

Liverpool 4:3 Everton
United 1:2 City

Also, props to all PL teams making it to the next round of CL!!

Liverpool 4 Everton 1.

United 1 city 1

Liv 3 - 1 Eve

Man 0 - 2 City

Liverpool 3-2 Everton
Utd 2-1 City

Liverpool 2 - 2 Everton
United 0 - 0 City

There is your humbling post @Shaymoose17 ;)
Gracias! Lol but do you seriously think your attack can't break a few bus windows and shoot through them to find the back of the net?
+2
Liverpool 1-0 Everton
Utd 1-1 City
if we had Mendy playing then yes, there is only one way this game could go but Mourinho will park his bus so well that some of his players will prolly end up playing as deep as behind the goal lol at the moment we can power through only one side (Walker side) but if Mendy was fit no bus could stop this City team. Pep said it in his interview that we can "power" through teams with Walker and Mendy, now that is cut in half with Mendy's absence. Also with Mendy fit Gabriel and Aguero were scoring a lot of goals cos Mendy is really good at powering through that left hand side and crossing it on a plate for the strikers.
United 1-0 City
Liverpool 2-2 Everton
Gonna go with Liverpool 1, Everton 1.

Ask me about the Manchester Derby in a few hours.
1-2 was a great prediction....spot-on!

Anymore doubters that City have already won the title?
+1
I'll go 2-1 to City as well
mystic Joey strikes again
Some stats from skysports, how do the 2 manchester clubs compare since Ferguson retired 4.5 years ago?

City vs United

City 107 vs United 87 league games won

City 352 vs United 304 points won

City 2.1 vs United 1.8 points per game

City 382 vs United 264 goals scored

City 260 vs United 50 days on top of the league

Enjoy
+7
Hopefully some more positive stats on derby day.

Ya'll ready for this? Should be 🔥 Unless Mou feels otherwise, *Remembers Spurs game* 😒
+2
How about let's compare the total number of premier league trophies? ;)
Total number of premier leagues doesn't work, because if you go that way Liverpool will be the best team but at the moment they are playing as a good top 4 side not the best team. Arsenal would be 2nd best or 3rd best but at the moment even their own fans make fun of their club with the whole Wenger out thing and due to not winning the league in over 10 years.

For this reason its more logical to consider recent stats recent years as suppose to going back in history.
+2
It's more logical to you because the stats support your agenda. Long live the day I see a humbling post, though I won't hold my breath.
+8
5 total trophies each, both with 2 league titles since 2011. You guys are spectacular this season and could win many things, but you aren't 08-12 Barcelona yet.
Man City finally took an L. Here is hoping that translates into L's in the league. Nothing personal man city fans. In fact I would prefer Man City to win the title instead of Man Utd or Chelsea.
That loss might make us even stronger. I personally welcome the loss. In my opinion it takes a bit of pressure of players with all the media hype while also bringing them down to earth showing that we can lose.
i hope they lose so the league would open up a tiny bit
Awww. I feel the love. :)
Two in a row and the media will deem them to be "in crisis" despite still having a 5 point lead and moving on to R16
Sucks we have a 30 Million pound Titus bramble to fill in for defense.

Mangala?

You bet.
aww i remember bramble ahah
@Yaldho Its what I do
Fkin hell the last time im here often mourinho was a chelsea manager😂

If anyone rmb me hmu here how yall been man damn miss this place honestly. So whay changed😂 are there still mods around😂

Chelsea fans don't like Mourinho anymore.
Liverpool, same old same old.
Arsenal- i believe it's Wenger IN for now.
Spurs. A much improved team.
United. We remember the good old days..
City- Renaissance under Pep.

Welcome back.

Arsenal fan update: Wenger in, Alexis out. lol
Differences between Pep's best season in charge of barcelona (when he won the champions league by beating man united in the final) vs man city

Barcelona vs Man city
goals per game 2.5 vs 3.1

shots per game 15.8 vs 17.6

possession 73% vs 72%

successful passes per game 669 vs 649

%passes short 93% vs 94%

goals conceded per game 0.6 vs 0.6

shots on target against per game 2.8 vs 1.6

stats from sky sports

which one's better?
This would be better in the city chat.
+1
nah, here is better so that Barcelona fans can comment too
Barcelona is better, they won things after all those stats, stats mean nothing unless you win, just my opinion though.
+5
Barcelona, cause he won trophies, yall haven't won anything thus far lol.

Edit: @Silva nailed it.
SilvaMaestro Bluffmaster, you guys do realize the season isn't over yet. If we win the treble or quadruple it will be better than Barcelona's season
YEah I mean we are playing incredible football and no matter the result of the season that cant be taken away from us. However, greatness is measured in accomplishments in tandem with performance.
Barca 10/11 and 11/12 season were a joy to watch, they dominated the match in such a convincing way and Messi-Xavi-Ineasta at their top forms
That's a big if, but we will see.
Season's not even half over yet, post this after the EPL and CL have concluded and then make your comparisons.
Spurs have been playing good football for a few seasons and have nothing to show for it, they are a meme now.

Also the discussions are fine, and any discussion is better than a snoozefest that was this forum, but this feels like Man City's forum now lol
Yeah but Spurs have completely transformed, trophy would be nice, but it doesn't mean what Spurs have done last few seasons is meaningless, they are a different animal now.
Yes definitely Spurs are a whole new team, but how long can they keep it up without winning before the likes of Eriksen and Kane are tempted by Barca, Madrid. They need to win trophies to show for their massive improvement. But improve they have.
The memes are going to be a good example of a footballer's mentality.

a. stay in a team that doesn't offer good wages for ability while the team is collectively working towards getting better.

b. want more for their own personal career and consider the meme's growth to happen too slow while they can reach their dreams elsewhere and get paid better.

We shall see.
City are playing great and currently best PL team. But not even close to Pep's Barca by some distance
@Bazinga I was thinking the same thing, Pep's best Barcelona dominated even the most elite clubs when they were at their best, it remains to be seen if we can achieve that against the likes of your Real, Barca, Bayern etc which I doubt, mainly because of our defense, if our defense was as strong as our attacking side of the game then maybe. Barcelona had the likes of Puyol, Busquets, Pique, Alves etc world class defenders and knows how to pass the ball.
I don't watch all the games so I wanna ask you all here. Basically every team city play park the bus and time waste from the beginning of the game. They probably complete 100 passes total. Is this similar for the other top 6? It's feels lik it happens to us way more but it must happen to the other teams too. Regardless Itansucking te joy out of watching my team play and unsurprisingly it's very frustrating.
Yes it does happens to all the big teams Also it happens more to teams who like to dominate possession.

BTW City does like to waste time too. Like today when Pep made Sane move all the way to the other side of the pitch to waste time when he was eventually substituted. When the situation calls for it, all teams waste time.
+1
Innocuous question mate. and yeah wasting time in the last ten minutes when you have a lead is pretty standard. Taking 40 seconds for a goal kick in the 6th minute not so much. Watching city play this last week I've seen some pretty hilarious time wasting strategy.. People can praise the performances of the teams all they want but it's not brave it's not shrewd tactically it's unoriginal bus parking, with a reliance on set pieces.
teams only park the bus against us they don't do it to other top teams, one example is watch how Southampton played against Man united and then compare it to how they played against us
Yes it's standard but for smaller teams wasting time to get a draw is pretty standard too. Ask any fan base on here and they will tell you of teams wasting time and parking the bus against them. It's not a special treatment that just City is getting. That's what I meant.
I don't expect anything different from them. They know what we can do when we have possession and one pass from KDB can lead to a goal. So what else are they to do? Play an open game and get smashed 5-0 or trying to play or get a 1-1 draw? Again, its not about the style your playing when your in their position, its the points that matter.
Mediocre football and undesirable results will always lead to sackings and unhappy fans. Which is the most important. Maybe if lower half english teams focused on their football instead of surviving the football of others they would start to see improvement. Too many teams are in a sort of Purgatory where they cant threaten the top 6 and their too afraid of relegation to form any sort of culture and style. Props to swansea newcastle and bournemouth.
To be honest it is not that easy to have a go at the top 6 teams. Mid and lower table teams will always park the bus against the top 6. Except for pool - their defense is makeshift at best at the moment.
I remember when Man City played LFC Pep parked the bus, by that I mean he had 11 players behind the ball. Of course that game got out of hand very quickly, but I am just saying. The bottom teams do it often and the top teams might do it every now and then. Bottom teams usually do it when they play any of the top 6 teams because they are willing to settle for a draw.
+1
Yeah I dont need lessons on bus parking. My point is that the evidence of its merits are dubious, and most of the time when smaller teams get results its because they were brave and played football. These teams are accomplishing nothing, they play most of the year with fear. The teams that make a splash and finish top 10 usually are the smaller teams that play enterprising football. The teams that arnt afraid like Watford, Leicester and Burnley.

10 men at the top of the box is not a tactic worth praise its not even worth being called a tactic. Hard work doing so is worth praise though.
I was having this conversation with someone a while back, I think a lot of it is because the top teams have steadily been using some variation of a 3-5-2, which has caused other teams to employ it in defense. The result is that usually the non-top 6 teams don't have a lot of quality in the fullback areas and end up playing very defensively. So I'd say it's reactionary, they know that getting a point off a top 6 side would be a success
I'd say Arsenal have faced more than their fair share of buses at the Emirates over the years. Particularly since we try to play a possession based game, teams are happy to sit back and frustrate us for 90 minutes.

I think it's a combination of not having the ball, which leads to a defensive shape out of necessity, and the acceptance that if Sunderland/West Ham/Palace etc try to outplay a top 6 side then they'll get outclassed
