1-1 vs Wolves. 88th minute. Too early to mention? Have I cursed it?

Will the press be on peps back, talk of player revolt. Nah, they just make stuff about Jose instead.

Looking like same again this season for City hard to see how they don’t go 90 points plus again this season, they still give you a chance with risky defending but going forward they create a ridiculous number of chances.

Pep wasn't there tonight. Arteta in charge. Memphis with 2 assist.

Good old Memphis. He is doing pretty good with Lyon, wonder if we will see him back here one day.

Kudos to Lyon, they played pretty well and this City team can be got at if you play a little more expansively. Obviously not all teams can do that but if you have some good attacking players then you can get rewarded. Most teams turn up to City and they have been defeated even before they’ve left the dressing room. Sure City will still progress and probably even win the group but this is a little wake up call for them.

Don't see why we'd ever go back unless he suddenly started banging in 40 goals a season at Lyon we know mentally he couldn't cope with Utd and maybe he just isn't quite good enough for the PL.

I hate to say it but... I watched the all or nothing documentary, or at least some of it and I admire City. They have a clear strategy. Pep knows what he wants and has the buy in of everyone.

Yep they put it in place have had ups and downs under Pellegrini while they waited for Pep but they always stuck to it and now they’re getting the pay off.

They’ve signed players who are leaders in their teams driven individuals who are all pulling in the same direction they’ve avoided the big name divas who came for money. They’ve been ruthless in getting rid of those who didn’t fit as well and been clinical when they made mistakes replaced players like Nolitto or Bravo who just weren’t cutting it.

Yes it’s all been done at a huge cost but the money has been spent well and thought out signings to fit missing pieces into the puzzle.

Premier League: Liverpool 0-0 Manchester City - 7th October 2018

61 minutes in and Liverpool and City have just managed the first shot on target between them. This game hasn’t lived up to expectation

Currently on course for a 95 point season and 100 goals and that's without De Bruyne who will be back after internationals.

It's going to take a massive effort from someone to stop them they remind me of the Chelsea side that won back to back under Jose they are just so far ahead of everyone else the Utd team that took top spot off them was one hell of a team and they only just beat them to it from memory.

Looks like some tough years ahead for us while this team is together they're on a different planet to us right now.

Spurs were a bit wasteful on the night probably did enough to get a draw but even on a completely rotten pitch they still knocked it around like they were playing on a carpet at times the touch and control of the players is unreal.

City are like that meat that they are trying to produce in labs, it’ll always be artificial even if it’s a success.
