  1. I absolutely understand what everyone is saying about the players being exhausted etc. etc. but that doesn't excuse the fact that we keep paying out shedloads of money for players who continually disappoint and don't live up to their supposed reputations.  It's such an anti-climax and I'm getting fed up with it.

    When the player you most enjoy seeing in a Chelsea shirt is Thiago Silva then you know you're in trouble (and absolutely no disrespect to him, he's been magnificent, and I do like to watch great defenders).

    We also have one of the most expensive squads in PL history, which was created to play 60+ games in a season.

    personally I would have gone down the injury route rather than Covid for an excuse. 

    Sadly it's being proved that expense doesn't mean excellence in our case.

    Kavanagh as VAR would see a reunion of the Manc duo that shafted us in the home game two years ago (when they ignored the Maguire kick in Bats' goolies, amongst other refereeing crimes).

    You were saying?

    Referee: Anthony Taylor

    Assistants: Gary Beswick, Adam Nunn

    Fourth Official: David Coote

    VAR: Chris Kavanagh

    Assistant VAR: Dan Robathan

    Just watching City v Everton.  City are being hailed by the commentator for having TWO academy products on the pitch. 

    Edit: and now Guardiola being credited with the development of Mahrez. 

    Sterling not getting away with diving for a penalty for a change or maybe I'm being harsh.  Although he's scored now anyway :-(

    What would he do with curtains (unless he is planning to make lederhosen out of them)?

    I'm not quite 'on it' today.

    By reading your post I've just realised the clever double meaning of Droy's.
