Our record in Manchester since promotion in 2013 is as follows

Played 8
Won 0
Drew 0
Lost 8
Scored 0
Against 20

So things are looking up. Last 3 away games to City lost 3-0 then 4-0 then 5-0 so we all know how this goes.

Aguero is crapping himself and the city keeper has just handed in a transfer request to avoid us

On the plus side Jesus has an aversion to crosses...on the minus side so does our keeper. We're gonna get crucified.

We also put four past City in the fifth round of the FA Cup up there.


Unfortunately they put 11 past us.

Vc Man City, it might be lucky we are in such a strong position to name a side comprised entirely of defenders. Who needs strikers?

I thought pessimism was bad enough but fatalism takes the biscuit.

We'll nick it 2-3. :lux:

I was up there for the 5-0 last season and that was grim enough. But we have regressed since then. I salute all making that trip. We could be murdered and a score range of 5 to 8 in City's favour is a very possible scenario.

Very tough run of games coming up; however, as with the tail end of last season. We pulled through it.

the next two games should be approached more like preseason drills. We know we'll lose so we are better off trying to get the little things right. Work on defensive cover, positioning, getting stuck in, winning 50-50 balls, and those sort of things.

We should go up with a bit of optimism at least. At his point in time a goal would be a victory in itself.

Luckily city have been having trouble scoring too this season ... Most they gotten in a game is 6, so as long as we score 7 - points in the bag.

I reckon we should treat the next 4 (including the cup game vs Huddersfield) games as a second shot at pre-season, with a 30 game season to follow. I'm not saying we should throw the games, but think they represent an opportunity to get the squad fully fit and in line with Roy's way of thinking about how we should play. Ultimately, I think that may garner more points down the line and do less damage to our confidence than desperately hoping to hang on to a nil-nil draw.

Fighting our way to a point could be the turning point i will be on the draw at 15/2 if we rest Punch and Ward for Sakho and Luka.

City drop kerper in new formation shocker. Ahead of their game against Crystal Palace, Pepe has revealed that he is to drop his keeper and try a new moreattacking formation.
Having watched Palace this season, we know our goal is in no danger and the goal differance at the end of the season could be vital explained the city boss.
The Palace manager Hodgson was unaviable for comment as it was afternoon nap time followed by bingo.

We also haven't beaten Man U in a league game since 1991.

Call me insane, but with City top and coming off a 6-0 bonanza, and with us making the worst kind of record breaking headlines...I've got a funny, funny feeling but I'm not going to say it cos I don't want to jinx it.

Unfortunate that we go into this run of three games without so much as a goal to our names, let alone a point - however as has been said earlier, it is almost like a second shot at preseason. We wouldn't be expecting anything from these matches regardless of our form, and so to be expecting to lose all three isn't that much of a change.

Right now, I'd like to come away from the Chelsea game with some hope that the team look like being able to turn this around. That for me isn't necessarily any points, but more that we've managed to score, and any goals against are limited to quality from the opposition, rather than our own defensive cock ups!

That will hopefully give us something to build on for the remaining 30 games, although wins would need to start flowing pretty much straight after.

Hopefully the Huddersfield game will give us a boost tomorrow night as well.

After these 3 games of death, we have a run of games, where if we do not then start picking up points we are finished, as they are all winnable.
Could have 30 points by Arsenal!
use the next 3 to get the formation and team right, then lets climb the league.
Anything less than wins after Chelski, then its the championship next year.

Must admit I look at the next three games as a bonus. We wouldn't normally expect to get anything from these three games, so it gives us a chance to get players fit, and working to Roys methods. If we get any points, or even score a goal, that's a bonus, but I'd rather these next three games than end up losing three winnable games instead.

If you take into account the teams we've already lost too, and the 11 games against the top 6 level sides left, we're running out of winnable games already :D

Don't know what all the fuss is about our games get easier and easier....

We play 1st place, then 2nd place, then 3rd place then 4th place in our next 4 games, then we've got spammers and then 5th place Spurs who we all know can't win at home. Every game gets easier for the next 2 months, by the end of the October the fixtures will seem so much easier.

We should be working on passing the ball to someone in the same shirt. I have been to the last three home games and have come to the conclusion we are deteriorating game by game.

Really fear for us at City. Went to last year's away game and their main tactic was to get down the outside and pull the ball back, given the amount of room we allowed Soton on Saturday, if we do the same we could be looking at a cricket score, glad I'm not going this year :eek:

Aguero and Jesus get into a heated argument about who will score most goals against us and it devolves into a fight involving most of the City first team, all of whom pick up various injuries meaning they will miss Saturdayís match.

Noticed Man U are in Champions League action in Moscow on Wednesday. Couldn't have wished for a better situation really. Should take at least 10% off their performance levels.

Okay, so it will more than likely mean we'll lose 2-0 not 5, but small mercies and all that.

As is always the caase with this one - who's the ref?

That's an interesting point; 6 games 6 defeats and no goals, but other than the Huddersfield ref not protecting Zaha - we can't blame any of the referees for any of the losses. Not a single thread about or - and I can't remember seeing a comment anywhere.

We've been so shite that we're not even giving referees something to get wrong.


LOL people can quote me on that one.

9th December 1989 - I was there. Good day out - up on an inexpensive train (I have the day return train ticket), match ticket was 4 quid, beers in the ground, and we won.

For reference: Arsenal away New Years Day was 6 quid. Wednesday charged us 7, Charlton sharing our ground 5 and Tottenham 5.

The semi final against Liverpool was 7 quid.

I just noticed I have England/Argentina Feb 2000. Don't even remember going to that.

England/Turkey 5, England/NI 4, England/Albania and England/Colombia 6.


How things change - Sky has really benefitted the fans that go to games - the rail companies don't mind diping their hands in your pockets either. 30 pound cap and they are being soooo generous. 20's plenty with 9 years of 'austerity'.

Its absolutely shameful. Must be by far the worst record in the league. The last time we even put up anything resembling a fight was the Ambrose cup game. Probably the only other reasonable performance was the one KG got sent off in where we only lost because of a hopeless refereeing performance. It's not even as if the two Manchester teams have been outstanding throughout this time.
