Pogba not even named on the bench for United there is obviously something seriously wrong between him and Mourinho and Mou comes out and says its all "lies" i wish we could play them right about now while they are having all these problems, i bet we could smash them 6 - 1 again haha!
The media is making a meal of it, trying to create a rift between Jose and Pogba. I doubt their actually is even is one.
I don't think the media is making a rift about it, in fact lately the media has been right about transfer rumours and other stuff. Pogba's agent publicly said that Pogba is not happy that Sanchez is making double his wages, so he wants to double his wages and when Pogba was substituted out you could tell by his facial expression he wasn't happy plus he doesn't like playing as a defensive mid everyone knows this every pundit also talked about it. So there is obviously a rift between Jose and Pogba hence why he left him out for todays game. The whole he's "ill" thing is made up to cover up the rift. I think after todays 2 - 0 result Jose will realize even more that he is better off without Pogba cos he likes to go up a lot and that doesn't fit Jose's plans.

Pogba likes to play football, Jose is the opposite he prefers anti-football cos that frustrates opponents and he ends up winning games that way. The 2 are not a match for sure.

I wonder if that hypocrite Gary Neville will call Conte and Mourinho a "joke" as well since they had only 6 players on bench for their FA cup games??
We had 7 substitutes on the bench.

Did some quick research and chelsea used 7 as well.
The battle at the back will be very interesting. Kompany is now fit, we have Otamendi who has been a rock all season for us. Stones who has improved so much and Laporte who's insanely talented. Can't believe his only 23 years old, the same as Stones but his ability on the ball is something.

Lol, for once we have solid and quality CB options!
Kompany and otamendi havnt been very assured at the back. Not sure they have a great understanding together.
Otamendi is one of a kind - El General. Stones/Laporte are sort of similar but with different strong feet which is good. I think Kompany might suffer a bit next year but I am not complaining! Good problem to have.

We need good fullback cover to be honest. If Walker is injured we are in trouble. Danilo is good but not the level we need our fullbacks to be. Delph is great to cover for Mendy and he has proven that.
^ Pep is happy with what he has at the LB position in Zinchenko and Delph. The RB position is what's troubling. Wish we had the option to recall Maffeo but for Danilo I think time is up. When two MFs are playing make shift LB and your on the bench, you know your in trouble.

As for Kompany. I hope he never leaves. Good character in the locker room and should join the coaching staff if he retires in the next few seasons. But for now, a fit Kompany is welcome any time.
Not to mention Pablo maffeo has a real chance of takin backup right back and maybe Angelino can prove a worthwhile left back
Your team is on some serious fire. Safe to say, you can win all four competitions this season.
Nothing is guarantee just yet. Fa cup is in early days, where still in the thick of UCl, plenty of big teams left. Arsenal are capable of surprising people from time to time.

Although as a fan, I would dream of nothing more than seeing City lift all of them. All doubters would be silenced.
I wonder if anybody will doubt city's ability with the current squad under Pep. The team is playing genius football. I mean actual football and not diving around to get pen's.
+4
Why dive when you can just score and be done with it :) No need to waste time on such theatrics.

Sane out- Bernardo Silva in

David Silva out- Gundogan in

We really are blessed with the quality we have. Gundogan had a great game with 2 goals. Glad to see the rotation at the back. Kompany making his first start in UCl after a two year absence, happy for him. Now we have two fresh CBs in Laporte and Stones ready for the weekend. Delph is back, along with Sane coming off the bench. Aguero killing it and really picking up form as of now, his been inconsistent from time to time but his undroppable atm.
+1
Fully agree, I think now we can almost say we have depth in the squad, we have youngsters we can rely on plus our first team players. Would love to see Pep bring in Maffeo and we should be good in most departments. I'd like Danilo to stay, I like his character. I also hope Kompany can remain fit as it would give the team an even more boost as well as himself.
Jesus Aguero scores 4 goals including a bar down showstopper and KDB lays 3 pearls for assists and the headlines and "talking points" put out by the media focus on Salah and Kane. If either of those two scored 4 goals the Guardian might just declare Salah or Kane a God. Agueros one of a very select few current players who has scored more than 3 goals multiple times.
One thing we gotta admit Mancini did have an eye for great potentials, besides all the players he signed he also wanted to sign Hazard really badly but the club at that time decided not to do it and he was 20 i think back then and we can see Hazard has become world class today. None of Mancini's signings were flops, most of them stayed at the club for 7+ years. Even today Mancini's signings like Aguero Silva are pulling the strings for the team.
^ Exactly, Mancini had an eye for talent and brought in players like Aguero, Silva, Yaya etc. We've had plenty of hits and misses but without him but the core of our team that is still active today was because of him. Pellegrini and Pep would have been left with a tougher job had Mancini not been here.

Its kind of bizarre at the time I supported his sacking because we were playing with the same line up, too many draws, terrible UCl performances and too many bad overall performances from individuals. Now you look at it, he never really got the players he wanted, we were still new in UCl football and we finished 2nd in the second. Sure we lost to Wigan but I think he deserved another season. The expectations on him where so high, tough ending for him. The style of football we played was not only beautiful but we played with balls, we had strong players in the MF and we were a physical tough squad to play against. Mancini played a more balanced type of football between attack and defense.
Yeah, he lost to Wigan because he put Joe Hart in goal instead of Pantilimon who played very well the entire FA cup competition, that was his big mistake and we recently found out that Hart is a pretty loose goalkeeper. That header by Wigan player could have been saved easily it was directed at Hart directly but he somehow let it in. Had it been Panti he would have saved it. And also the board didn't back him up when he wanted to sign Van Persie, he said in his press conference that the club missed him by just a few pounds. But i think the new directors Txiki and Ferrano were looking to sack Mancini from the day they arrived at the club because Mancini had too much say in who to sign etc.

And then came Pellegrini in his Lamborghini with signings like NILito, Bony, Navas... i don't think any of his signings are still at the club?

Mark Hughes made some great signings too Zabaleta, Kompany and for cheap too, i think each one of them he signed for 8 mil pounds.

If Pep ever left, Mancini would be the only man I would want the club to bring back for a second spell.
Sane is back, now if only Mendy gets back we will tear teams apart on that left side.
Mendy was said to be out until April. Not sure if he should be pushed to play a game this season at all. ACL injuries are serious, so no need to rush him.

As for Sane, surprised his back so quickly. We need him. Also G. Jesus should be back after the Basel game.
Pep said Mendy should be back by March, considering he's young we should try to get him back for the champions league and FA cup games at least.

With Mendy in the team we can play with both Aguero and Gabriel. Without him we can't start them both
United is such a crappy team, they can't put 2 passes together with all that money spent. And our fan goes there and tells them Pep got a "blank" cheque. Pep never got a blank cheque, he lost 13 first team players just in 1 window, because of their age and being at the end of their contracts. Even if it wasn't Pep, even if it was Pellegrini we still would have brought in players. For Mourinho Van Gaal had already bought so many players so his job was much easier and he got all the players he wanted. We were in for Pogba but somehow United got him so what "blank" cheque are we talking about? We were in for Sanchez but United got him so who really has the "blank cheque"?

Its sad for football that United sits above Liverpool and Tottenham when those 2 teams are head and shoulder better. We shouldn't give United false hope in terms of "blank cheque" and just tell them that their team can't put 2 passes together thats why they are so unwatchable, false hope will be detrimental if they finish outside top 4.

To make things worse Mourinho yet again calls Newcastle lucky? when Newcastle should have been given a penalty and Valencia sent off for that boot in Atsu's face.
+1
The funny thing is, if it weren't for Pep this season Mou would have been leading the league and been touted as a genius. Pep has come to haunt his magnum opus, which was supposed to be the United job.

Mou won't be changing anytime soon. However, his style is still effective in winning cup games, so don't be surprised if he still manages to win the CL. Again - just trying to make a point that you don't need to be free flowing to be champions.

Truth be told, not all football needs to be flowing to be beautiful either. Do you remember Chelsea's CL triumph? I thought that was the best piece of football I had seen in terms of resilience and tenacity. I don't like the way United is playing right now (not sure who does), but I think it is unfair to say that the way they are playing is 'SAD' for football. That's just plain attacking them for the sake of it.

Anyways - everything said and done - I think the football that City is playing at the moment is a gift to everyone. Could you imagine United fans talking about how good the City team is playing? That's sacrilege and Pep has made it happen. We can always say that we lived in the time of Messi and Ronaldo but to see our own team play like this - means so much more to a Citizen. Celestial stuff.
I agree with you that seeing United fans complement City is good but we shouldn't bring our own club down with the whole "blank cheque" notion in order to sympathize United's loss today. Although on paper it looks as if Pep has spent a lot but if you really look into he didn't, because he lost 13 first team players under Mancini and Pellegrini all in just 1 window, not because they didnt fit Pep's style of play, the only one that didnt was Joe Hart everyone else was 34+ and at the end of their contracts. I don't think we will spend 75 mil or 100 mil on a single player anytime soon, Mahrez is a perfect example of that we refused to pay 95mil for him although in todays market he's prolly worth 95mil.

Even Pep himself mentioned this in his press conference saying some teams spend 200 mil on 2 players (obviously he was referring to United with Lukaku and Pogba's buys) we prefer to spend that money on 5 or 6 players. After that he said "maybe one day we will spend 100 mil on a single player, when will that happen? I don't know"

As far as Mou goes, I'm pretty sure he will be fired mid next season. He has that 3rd season syndrome where the players get sick of his style especially the forwards cos what forward likes to play left back. Pogba is an offensive player and i think Mou has realized it, which is why he's been dropping him to the bench pretty often lately, I doubt he will start their next game. Lukaku scored what 2 goals in 15 or 20 games? if that was Aguero he would have been released by Pep a long time ago but because of his price tag and the fact that he does a lot of defensive work Mou still starts him.
Damn Tomi you really went in deep in those paragraphs. Celestial stuff lol. They should hire you at Sky. Good read bro.
Its ironic how Mou had a good run go games where they went unbeaten for months on end and they managed to get a few trophies while we couldn't defend for our lives where getting trashed by Leicester 4-1 last season. The roles really have revered but lets not try and insult them, lets just try to avoid karma as much as possible lol!
I'm sick and tired of hearing the same old bullshit excuse United fans use..."if it wasn't for City, we would be winning the league".

Yes City is playing out of this world, yes United would be leading the league but they have to finish 2nd at the end of the season then they can use that. Still lots of games left to go.

They are barely ahead of Liverpool who's defence is Championship side material and who's midfield is okay at best and a team that sold Coutinho and is playing the great Ox instead.
They are barely ahead of a Chelsea side who lost one of the best strikers in the world and got a young unproven talent. A team who's coach doesn't get the players he wants. They are barely ahead of Spurs who are very inexperienced and are a big time chokers.

United fans acting like they are having an amazing season but it's City making them look bad. Truth is this is Mourinhos second season, a league he's very familiar with, spent as much as he wanted and yet he's barely leading the league (if we don't count City).

Same old boring tactics, being cowards and parking the bus against big teams and hoping for a lucky goal. Now a Unite fan will come and say oh but we play good football against everybody outside of top 6. Well no s**t, that's because there's clearly a big difference between Stoke and United so of course United will play good against smaller teams.

As a neutral we all watch the big games and in big games we all know what United does. I swear to God the day Barca goes away to Madrid, Valencia or Atletico and parks the bus is the day I will give up this beautiful sport.

Wow @SanchezAlexis you really nailed it with every point! Agree with you 100%. They should hire you at BBC. Good stuff bro.
Is Sanchez miss worse than Sterling? Don't think the media will roast him for it but i mean sterlings miss was at an incredible pace which makes any contact difficult.
Sanchez had control and wide open net and bottled it. Also will pogba ever boss a game when united need him to? Looks great in a 4-0 win but I'd rather have Garett Barry when we need a big win.
This match made me laugh!
Sterling has 15 goals this season in the EPL. That is incredible for a wide winger. He is going to have misses on the way - but who cares if he gets 20 goals a season?

Btw - i was reading some stats the other day and how it is way more important to arrive at the right places than to be able to finish well. Sterling has been arriving like a center forward - while doing the duties of a winger plus defensive effort. He is a 100% starter for us - even when Sane comes back.

As for Sanchez - he is a world class player but fits United better than us. We need pace on the wings he is more of an inside forward. And yes, that miss was absolutely dismal.
Sterling miss was worse come on now -.-...
The ball was slightly behind sanchez thats why he had to take that extra touch which ended up causing him to miss.

Sanchez left Arsenal for Utd to score pay cheques.
