Well, after today's gutless performance, I can't see anything other than an away win.

You have to wonder what the point is in even turning up for this one. I know I’m only going for the alcohol with mates before hand.

We’ll again play deep, with Arnautovic a lone figure around the half way line. Probably Lanzini in for Mario.

Man City will play within themselves and slice through us whenever they feel like stepping it up. 0-2 at half time. 1-4 at full time. Chicharito on with 15 mins left to get our goal.

We’ll all wonder how there’s been so many times this season Moyes has let us concede 3+ goals in a game, then we’ll spend a week talking about Joe Hart playing in the next game and complaining we don’t give anyone a go. Same old, same old.

Well, you never know in football. But I would be absolutely amazed, astonished, gobsmacked and utterly delirious if we got anything out of this. Us 0 City 4.
And never mind City going for the hundred, the way we're going we could yet end up letting in 100 over the season. :wink:

Dear Man City,

WHU fans here. We've always quite liked you. So on that basis, please don't rip us a new one next weekend.

Kindest regards

It will be interesting to see if any players suddenly develop minor injuries this week that prevent them playing.

Next Sunday will tell us all we need to know about individual players characters.

Who wants it ?

Joking apart, there is a real chance this could be our worst Premier League campaign ever for goals conceded. If he is a defensive coach , he doesn't seem to be a very good one.

Anyway back to the game, not many fancying our chances, would it be an idea to rest our best player. He has worked his socks off lately(e.g. when he picked up his booking yesterday).

It is not like we haven't got other striker options on the bench.

Every single one of us predicted a total mauling in the other fixture we had against this lot, earlier in the season.

We lost it to a late goal.

I came home from the Southampton game riding a bit of a high for some reason I then bought tickets to this.... what the hell was I thinking? I went to the carling cup game last year as well. :lol:

New PR promotion for the game. 'Come see Man City's superstars score their 100th PL goal (currently on 98) and possibly break the PL record of 103 goals' 'Click here for tickets'

Defend for our lives and I'd play Carroll up top as the long ball option and potentially hold up play, put Arnie back on the wing or in behind.
