Simeone is such a fucking arse.

But we knew that.
And after being so amused by his antics when they played us, it appears Mcmanaman is no longer so much of a fan.
Why not just call him out for being a prick at the time Steve instead of making him out to be some kind of lovable eccentric?

Didn't Ancelotti and Real Madrid dick Pep's Bayern a while ago?

It's an ageing Real side and they've rode their luck but been ruthless in front of goal.

Hopefully Pep over thinks it but I don't see Real coping with their midfield.

Well, apart from Benzema and Modric, the others are really not that old ...

Not even sure there was any contact at alll.

cancelo (second city guy to have a go) clearly kicks his right foot, it really isn't hard to see

soft? yeah that is for me and they get given in our league every day of the week, the rule in recent years in general seems to be if you kick out to get the ball but kick the man instead they give it, the hardness of the kick is deemed usually irrelevant - whether that's how i'd like the rules to read is another issue

so im surprised they didn't give it via VAR

I'm not sure how relevant this is to the ref's or the VAR decision, but play continued after Correa's fall, and Atletico had a decent scoring chance, which you don't see from just a replay of the trip incident. I guess the ref thought something like, "Could be a pen, but a bit soft, not much in it, they've still got the ball, play on."

Foden got took out, but the little toad did a few rolls to get back on the pitch to timewaste. Enjoyed Savic hauling him off it. Then when no one was paying attention, a city player dragged Foden back onto the pitch.

If your whole mindset is defensive, shithouse football (even when you've got players like Greizmann, Felix, Lemar, Suarez, Carrasco etc) then you best go through, because you really do look like an absolute joke club if it leads to scoring no goals over two legs.

Thanks for showing that. It's very clear what happened. The defender got the ball (though it skidded off the outside of his boot) and the player dived after he realised he couldn't catch the ball.

It does feel weird to say, given how far ahead Real are in the La Liga, but I think Athleti was the far far better chance of getting rid of City before the final. Love to be proved wrong though.

I'm just not sure that Real have the defensive set up to keep City out, and the worst case scenario is that they fly out of the blocks at Real in the first half of the first leg (like they did against us last weekend) and the contest is over after the first leg.

Spot on, and therein lies the biggest problem with VAR (apart from the blatant cheating), its subjective and its one (or two) person(s) opinions based on the laws of the game. I have had numerous conversations over the last few months with friends discussing decisions where we just cant agree if the ref was right or wrong. Its always going to be subjective and there will always be arguments over whether x decision was correct or not. The cheats can hide behind this subjectivity as well.

Shame City play Tuesday-Wednesday and we Wednesday-Tuesday. Their Leeds away game would have been much trickier if it was the other way around, especially with Real being able to rest players in their league game.

Yep, agreed.

I think their only hope is that City do fly out of the blocks, in an attempt to kill the tie off early, and somehow punch themselves out and miss the inevitable opportunities that they create, then allowing Madrid to find their way into the game and maybe grab a draw. Then, try and score and early goal at home and hang on for dear life. Like ourselves in the league, their window for success is very narrow IMO.

Like most on here I'd have to fancy City to qualify for the final, but it'd be far from a shock to me if Madrid did win. City being at home first leg probably benefits them as I'd expect them to win at the Etihad and only need a draw to go through in the second leg, possibly even a narrow defeat if they're comfy at home. If Madrid can draw in Manchester I'd make them favourites to go through in the Bernabeu given their incredible ability to rise to the occasion in this competition (and benefit from incredibly bent decision making by referees  ;D)

They have to get under City's skin a bit, especially in Spain. Atmosphere in that one will be key, it sounded proper hostile the other night when Chelsea were leading, but as soon as Madrid got back into it it was very good. Madrid didn't look the same last year even though they got to the semis, I think if Covid wasn't a factor and they played that Chelsea team in full stadiums they'd have knocked them out. It's not the most intimidating ground in the world but there can still be a bit of noise.

I'm 99% up to here with the sight and thought of City right now.

at the risk of counting chickens (Villareal) -- it makes my stomach churn thinking they're the biggest obstacle in the way of us getting more silverware this year, and if they do stop us that means they will almost certainly get trophies themselves.

Yeah, think it depends on how quickly Madrid can get the ball to Vinicius and then to Benzema. Luckily Benzema's scoring with practically every shot he takes so they might not need many chances. Pep might overthink things and disrupt the team with his tinkering which tends to happen at this stage of the competition with some frequency.

Yeah, it feels like the schedule just keeps going against us doesn't it. I keep going on about it ad nauseum but i just cannot understand how our game against Utd has to be on Tuesday rather than Wednesday, given that we aren't playing Everton until Sunday!!!??? it would even the whole thing out.

He won’t get much change out of Walker, but feel as if he can catch him out with one or two well timed runs like he had against Chelsea.

It's in someways analogous to Kane and Son and what they did to City.  Spurs weren't amazing defensively at the Etihad, didn't have a lot of possession, and didn't create all that much, but Kane and Son (and Kulusevski) combined very well on the break, and they were very clinical with the handful of openings they did create.  If Real try to go toe to toe with City, they could struggle a lot, but at the same time, even if they concede an early goal or two, they have the clinical finishing to get back into the tie.  That being said, if they're really open at the back like they were against Chelsea, they'll eventually give themselves too much to do over 180 minutes.

Personally I think regardless of the winner it'll end quite tight, maybe a goal or two in it, I can't see either getting battered.

I was surprised when Madrid went to Paris and sat back for 90 minutes, especially when you consider PSG are probably the most mentally weak side to ever play regularly in the Champions League knockouts. I think for most part they're going to have to soak up the pressure again and may not even see a 1-0 defeat as a bad result. They'll have grown in confidence again though since then, especially after going to Chelsea and winning comfortably (despite nearly throwing it away) - I think both teams probably benefit from the order in the games, as City will fancy themselves to take a lead away from home, but Madrid will also fancy themselves at home even if they do narrowly get beat in the first leg.

Ultimately I think most will be surprised if Madrid go through. I certainly don't expect them to but as I said it wouldn't really shock me. I was convinced City would beat Chelsea in the final last season, it looked nailed on because they weren't ending the season in fine form, they lost the FA Cup final remember and a couple of league games, City had battered them at Stamford Bridge a few months prior too. They're far from unbeatable and if I was to think of sides who could grind something out against them one of the most likely would always be Real Madrid.

funnily enough on that, i was saying city would win it from the moment we knew the final players but when they read the teamsheet on tv before the kickoff i turned to my missus and said 'wtf, he's done it again, city have lost this', quite possibly the dumbest tinkering he's ever done, it's certainly the dumbest tinkering i've seen him do esp considering the gravity of the game

Gerard Moreno could be a doubt for Villarreal's Champions League semi-final against Liverpool after suffering a hamstring injury.

The striker left the pitch after 61 minutes of Villarreal's 2-1 win over Getafe at the weekend, having scored the opening goal in Madrid. Manager Unai Emery said: “It’s a muscle injury, let’s see how serious it is. We have to try to continue with patience so that he recovers.”

Villarreal have now released a statement. It read: “Gerard Moreno has a severe hamstring strain. His recovery time depends on how he responds to treatment.”
