I think most of the City players (although they probably wouldn't murmur it around their boss) value the Champions League higher than the premier league.  They're gagging for that prestige on their personal honours list.

They'll be f*cking gutted if Spurs knock them out.

I'm definitely in the 'it could knock the stuffing out of them' camp.

Did I hear that right that Pep said he thinks winning the league is more important? If he did that's hilarious... Way to go with the mind games...

Would any other club in the league have tickets left for an important European semi final the DAY of the show?

Does he f*ck!  Just like the players, I reckon they all want that CL title the most, but just won't say it out loud to each other.

They don't give a flying f*ck about City per se.  Not the legacy or anything like that.

They've got the Premier League titles on their CVs.  They want to look back after retirement and have a few CL titles on there too.  It ranks as high as the World Cup title these days really.

The likes of Kompany, David Silva and Fernandinho who are all 33 might not get another proper crack at winning the Champions League. I'd be amazed if they prioritise the league when they've already won 2-3 league titles.

I hope City go through, makes it more probable that Spurs get something at the weekend. If we win the league I literally could not give less of a fuck if these lot win the CL.

Definitely want the fuckers knocked out tonight, their whole project is built upon winning the CL, go out tonight and Pep hasn't obtained a single semi (oo-er) in his three years. Would be a complete failure on his part and it would undoubtedly effect their league form thereafter.

Don't fall for all this bullshit that if they lose tonight they'll annihilate Spurs and Utd in the league right after. Get knocked out tonight and EVERY remaining league game becomes far more pressurised for them.
Exactly, more pressurised, and they've already failed in their primary objective.
More likely to put Guardiola's position in trouble too.

I'd say the CL ranks higher for many top players.  You only get one shot every 4 years at the WC and there's no guarantee you'll even make the team. Plus there are plenty of quality players for countries that have no realistic chance of winning the WC.

Spurs don't need to win. Providing they score and stay within 1 goal of City, Spurs can lose and they'll still go through on away goals.

Think we could put arguments forward all day on the perceived advantages and disadvantages of City progressing.  Don’t think it makes any difference for Saturday’s game.  What will make a difference is tiredness.  The most important thing for me is a hard game, ideally with extra time.

I'd think tiredness from tonight would impact Spurs more in a league game

Imagine these fuckers having to watch a City c Liverpool Champions League Final knowing it would mean either a Quadruple for City or a 6th European Cup for us.

Would be an easier decision for them if we’d won the League, then they could probably get behind City fully. Maybe they would wish for that instead.

No, it doesn't.

It's all about opinions really. No one knows if the outcome tonight will have any bearing on the game at the weekend.
Personally, I'm in the camp of wanting City to lose in the hope it mentally affects them. If they win, they're a step further to doing what no English club in history has ever done. Yes they have cheated to do it, but the media won't ever mention that. They'll go down in history as the first club ever to win every competition in the same season. Immortality for this squad.
Lose tonight, and it's just another ordinary season.

Whilst City having two more tough games might be a plus I don't think it matters with their squad either way so I'm in the 'hope they get knocked' out camp. As good as Ajax are, City should put them to the sword and the quadruple will come that bit closer. No ta.

Come on Spurs, two draws will do this week.

Ajax are a worse opponent for City than the slower aging and over reliant on Ronaldo Juventus are.

Ajax are lethal on the break, City want teams to sit back and show them respect, when they have been beaten in the CL, teams have taken the game right to them on the front foot like we did at Anfield and just like Monaco and Lyon also did.

Anyway i have Spurs going through on away goals.
