The booing was really poor, a complete lack of class like you say.Did you not hear the assholes booing the entire game? ...Not an ounce of class shown before, during or since; players, manager and fans alike.
....You understand the ramifications of their financially doping?
...If you love this club or sport, your bleeding heart is thoroughly misplaced.
Its made me laugh so hard it’s business in the front and murder in the back.
Fuck em, they’ve bought enough trophies, that VAR result was a wonderful day for football.

3. Not sure what Trippier’s deal is. Tends to suck inside leaving Sterling in huge space. Cost us two goals. Particularly the first one. Does he not see him streaking down the side all alone? Is that a predetermined strategy to tuck in with Toby? Is so it ain’t working . Rose did same on another conceded goal.
I believe Pochettino’s plan is to go for the broke and hope to outscore City.
He could have opted to play safe by having 3 CB which will eliminate the “overloading” scenarios. However, as evidence from a lot of games City played against such “laid back” approach, they are always likely to score and it will be harder for us to come back to regain control of the game.
Hence, I believe Pochettino decided to gamble and hope that by pressing them aggressively, we have the chance to score an away goal. This is despite us giving chances for City to score. It prove to be a correct decision, the best approach we could have taken in our trying situation without our best players.
Man City played as well as they could pretty much and threw everything at us - and we still won.
The 1-0 at the lane was what made that game on Wednesday what it was. We had to go for broke after Sterling scored so early and they made the mistake of not taking their own foot off the pedal in order to stifle us later on in the game. They left gaps for us to exploit and we've got a few good players of our own...
We beat possibly the best team in Europe over 2 legs chaps, and it was glorious.
Well, it wasn’t Trippier’s fault. Man City was overloading the flank, with De Bruyne and Gundogan plugging into the half spaces between our CB and FB.
Both Trippier and Rose has to tuck in to limit them spaces. Questions has to be asked of our midfield:
1) why wasn’t there any track back to cover these spaces?
2) are we pressing too agressively that we kept getting caught out in defence where City managed to keep overload us time and time again?
3) or if we have to press aggressively as part of our strategy, are we doing it correctly?
