There ARE other teams(we'd have no-one to play otherwise) and here's where all-comers can discuss the wider world of football......

Unbelievable performance from city tonight. One of the all time great defensive performances from Dias. Never mind best since Rooney, Foden might be the best young English player in my lifetime. Has to start in the Euros.
He’s the best English player I’ve seen. Probably since Gazza and likely will be better than him as he’s (as far as I know) not on the piss and everything else.

When you say he has to start....the whole England side should be built around him full stop. Likes of Grealish etc aren’t fit to lace his boots. I’m sure there isn’t a single ounce of doubt about him starting every game because who on earth else would play ahead of him?

Yeah he's phenomenal. All the Stockport Iniesta stuff, but then he's somehow got properly quick over the last few years, more like a young Messi at the moment. Ludicrous first touch, at pace, added goals, performances in big games at that age. Hopefully he can stay fit and focused.

(And I'm a big Grealish fan btw, but it's Kane, Foden and one other).

It’s a shame we’ve got Kane and not much else. Oh for the days of a Shearer or Lineker. Ah well.

Throughout his time at Man City I've been a huge admirer of Sergio Aguero, I'd even go so far as to say I defy anyone not to be; however, few things have me shout "chuffed, serves you right you tosser" at the TV quite like seeing a player's dinked penalty kick being collected by a barely troubled keeper 😂

The fact the keeper started to go down, then casually stood up and caught it, made it all the more embarrassing. 😂

It was very funny, though I'm not sure it warranted his later actual statement apologising to his teammates, fans etc :lol:

I think you've got credit in the bank there, Sergio!

About the only thing the keeper didn't do, was spin it on his index finger. Funny as fcuk.
