Should be a laugh. Raheem Sterling, Kevin De Bruyne, Leroy Sané, Bernardo Silva, David Silva and Kyle Walker all in the Manchester City squad.

City are better than us. Simple as that.

Only a friendly though, and it will be useful.

3-0.

so we play this, then probably newcastle. would be nice to play a team that weren't a lightyear beyond us or one in the middle of a meltdown.

wolves would be a reasonable test, but unless we beat man city or they lose to newcastle, they're the one team out there we'll avoid playing.

Just seen that Steve Bruce may be the next Barcodes manager. Funny as ****. Nailed on to be relegated.

A routine 4-0 with us looking every bit relegation fodder. Wilshere & Reid to pick up long term injuries, Noble to end David Silva's career.

Can we all agree that this match literally doesn't matter and is purely an exercise in the league making some money and the players getting some proper running in their legs?

Seems if we can get that done before kick off it'll stop the wailing and crying when we get turned over by a jetlagged City playing at half pace :thup:

We'll win this game, and this tournament. Someone rich in China will be so enamoured that'll they'll spend billions turning us into the next super club.

Easy.

Have Man City actually departed for China yet? Even if they travel today you have to think they wont be in peak physical condition so maybe we will only concede 3.

^^^ According to the article on the home page they have - although it looks as though we're playing the women's team.
