    I am not reading a massive article by a plastic glory hunter like you.

    It's obvious you only support man city because they win trophies.
    Should be supporting your local team or at least at team in your country.

    Or because of the 10 years I lived in Manchester. Who knows.

    Genuine question, i swear this isn't a wind up.

    I haven't really been watching that much of you lot lately, not since we last played in the league cup if i'm honest. Is Pep struggling? I watched the BBC interview this morning and he looks very agitated, said he's nearing the end of his career already.

    Is it reflecting on the pitch?

    Gripe is upset that not every team in the league plays positive football and continues to take digs at the premier league despite the fact he is struggling more so than he ever did at Barca or Bayern. Bellend also claimed City are the 'Spanish Villarreal' and us and Liverpool are the top clubs they have to catch. Never knew Villareal were capable of spending 160Mill in a transfer window... Kinell.

    And judging by his recent interview, the man as lost the plot.

    A lot of managers have had tetchy post-match interviews, he had a mic thrust in front of him less than half-an-hour after the match finished. With hindsight, he probably realises he's a bit wrong on the big decisions, but in his defense, Mason was ****ing horrific all game. Although, I find it hilarious that this constitutes "losing the plot".

    He probably feels that his past record should buy him a little bit more time, rather than having his methods questioned already. He's said he came here for the challenge, that he needs to learn about and adapt to English football and I have the utmost confidence that he will.

    As for reflecting on the pitch? Dunno. We've had a poor December, with 2 of our worst 3 performances (Leicester and Liverpool) being last month. We've also been a bit unlucky. The results against Everton, Boro, and Chelsea could (and should) all have been victories, which would have put us in a much stronger position - top of the league in fact.

    2 missed penalties against Everton, a last-minute equaliser against Boro in a game where we had 25 attempts at goal, and then hitting the crossbar against Chelsea which would have made it 2-0 and possibly sealed the game.

    Fine margins.

    I'm certainly not worried.
