Kompany won’t last long as a pundit like that. Reminds me of whenever Dwight Yorke has tried to be a pundit and he just can’t leave his bias at the door.

Haha has he quietly been ditched? He made a worse pundit than he did a father.

Come on guys go easy on them. They're struggling with injuries to key positions despite having such amazing squad depth.

I mean we started today with a guy who was our 4th choice CB in September and we've had a goalie released by West Ham on a free between the sticks for most of this campaign. Don't let that get in the way of the narrative though, it's not like they've spent billions either.

The City manager said: “Ask Mike Riley and the big bosses about that. Don’t ask me. Ask Mike Riley and his people. I’m here to talk about the game. Every time I’m being asked why one day it’s handball, the next day it’s not. Don’t ask me. Ask them. I know the way we were champions last two seasons, I’m so proud of that.

“I’m uncomfortable because it looks like Pep is complaining but congratulations to Liverpool, 3-1, could we have done differently on the second, third one – is it a penalty, isn’t it a penalty? I don’t know what with all these ifs, you don’t know what will happen in the future. Ask the big bosses.

“Tomorrow I go to the Uefa meeting and we discuss these things. What can I say? It’s not nice for this club. We have started to be in the elite in the last 10 years, not like Liverpool, you’ll never walk alone, who have been there 30 years, 40 years, 50 or 60 years. We are new to that. The organisation will help us to grow, these experiences will help. These games are part of life, sometimes for us and sometimes against. The referee and these kind of decisions, ask the big bosses, they know more than me.”

However, the City midfielder Ilkay Gündogan said: “I saw the incident again in the dressing room afterwards and for me, obviously, it’s a penalty, but if you ask a Liverpool player they would say: ‘You can give it but it’s maybe a 50-50 situation.’”

By the mid-point of the summer, City had reached their limit of overseas players, meaning if they wanted to sign a foreign defender then Otamendi, or another foreign player, would need to leave. Nathan Ake of Bournemouth has been of interest in the past but a move never materialised, and with Otamendi unable to depart, Benfica’s Ruben Dias, nor any other foreign player, could arrive.

...

And now, with City nine points off Liverpool and facing Chelsea, Newcastle United, Burnley, Manchester United, Arsenal, Leicester, Wolves and Sheffield United between now and January 1, many are expecting them to dip into their pockets and rectify their woes. Yet they face the same problems; unless they can identify a quality and attainable homegrown defender, they will have to sell a foreign player.

They can always "sell" Otamendi to one of the Etihad sister clubs in the US or Australia. Don't see it as being a huge issue.

Morning City Lurkers  :wave

Do you know something? You lot are such a small club, the buzz from beating you has already gone. Yes it opened a 9pt gap to you, which is ace, but beating you ranks on the same scale as beating Villa in the next day buzz stakes. Compare that to a proper rival like Everton, where we would be buzzing for a few months, Divocks winner a year ago still gets us buzzing.

You are a small club with money, nothing more.  :wave

Rodri is utter garbage, another dud to add to many more duds bought by Txiki Begiristain.

I bet he looked amazing AF playing as one of the 3 DM's at Atletico that Simeone likes his midfield to set up.

Kompany is one bitter twat. This team took 97 points and became Champions of Europe last season, 2 pts dropped this season - they have the mentality to win this ya fuckhead

Souness should have asked him would VAR have sent him off when he crocked Mo, and then said “did you really sing a song about doing that, and about Seán Cox?”
