Manchester United supporters think David De Gea needs a break, Liverpool fans are already dissecting where the league was lost, and one Arsenal star is dubbed their most overrated player of all-time – all in Your Says of the Day.
Romero needs to play. De Gea needs a break until his contract is decided, sign or go!
Fred gave the ball away again.
We are a team playing to form.
This is the level we are at – attitute, talent and contract issues abound.
That should Pereira’s last game in the shirt. One of many that aren’t good enough to even be in the squad.
The harsh truth is that City simply have better players in every single position. They’re better on the ball and they’re more mobile and inventive off it. They’re also more organized, work harder, have a winning mentality and clear leaders in the squad. We have Ashley Young as captain, some spoiled brats controlling the dressing room and a total imbecile running the club. Things will only get a lot worse before they get better.
I’d be perfectly happy to f**k De Gea off, but I’m not sure anyone would want him. Same with Rashford and Martial, they’ve been rumbled. At least we should still get some coin for Pogba and Lukaku.
Nearly another DeGea ‘moment’, there has been no keeper playing consistently worse than him in the entire country this season, that’s the complete reality of it.
De gea has been distracted by his contract and most probably because his Spanish brothers mata and herrera contract are not being renewed. Pogba thinking about playing for zidane. Young thinking about his retirement and rashford thinking about the extra 0s in his contract. Lingard doesn’t even think so his brain dead, lukaku dying to play for juve, sanchez making so much money his thinking about his dog in a gucci top. Woodward too busy signing up commercial clients and the glazers just drinking money out of the club. The club in crisis and things are going to get worse before it gets better, hopefully the club has a huge summer clear out.
For whatever reason, very disappointed in David De Gea. Used to be our imperial soldier – not any more. If he wants off then goodbye, can’t have those awful mistakes creeping into his game.
Rashford gave a strange interview after the game. Looked like he was going to bust in to tears. Some f**king shambles we currently have on our hands. Just need to get to the summer now.
As an aside, I am shocked at how much De Gea has regressed this season. The man’s head is not in the game at all anymore.
Hatters – agree, and I get the feeling this is over his contract. He needs to sign up or ship out. If he is not going to sign we need to sell in the summer and let Romero have a few games.
Everybody is going on about De Gea and some of the goals he has let in. People seem to forget that from day 1, and even during the seasons he was brilliant. His near post has always been his weak spot, from day 1 he has let sh*t goals in at his near post, he seems confused as to either go for it with his hands or use his feet.
OK but De Gea is a professional footballer, after 8 years or so as our number 1 he’s still getting beaten by the same thing, long range near post shots. His distribution and command of area haven’t improved either. He’s an unbelievable reaction shot stopper, probably the best ever however his game has weaknesses that should be worked on.
Also think Romero should be the number 1 until De Gea’s contract is agreed or he leaves, the distraction seems to be a problem
I don’t see if the transfer ban takes place why we should worry. We have enough quality young players in Abraham, Tomori, Reece, Mason and Morata is banging in the goals for AM and Bakoyoko has been ACs best player, just to mention a few. Not saying we should bring them all in but they would be the same as new quality signings plus keep our best experienced players and imo it’s enough for one season.
well, well again we are in control of 4th place. Win the last three games and it is ours, but can we? Arsenal still have Leicester and Burnley away as two of their last three matches so could conceivably drop more points. United at Old Trafford will decide which team drops out of the running between us and United I think as they are three points behind us but finish up with Huddersfield away and Cardiff Home but we have an 8 goal advantage in goal difference. Arsenal will be hoping for us and United to draw. Still it is going to go down to the last day I think with three teams battling for 4th. We still have Watford at home and Leicester away and we will be struggling to get the full six points out of those. It may well come down to the best of the worst falling into 4th place.
Amazingly it’s back in our hands again. 😊

How many times have we said this season “we must win the next game” and then cocked up our opportunity.
I hope we are working hard on defending set plays this week and shooting from distance.
I am astonished we are still in with a shout of top 4 and perhaps that shows the poor quality outside of the top 2.
I want to see the manager mix up his tactics where necessary but i wont be holding my breath!
If we managed to get that much for him then you’ve got to say that he was a successful signing. True it would only be in terms of the profit but that enables us to be more competitive in the market.
I hope we convince him to stay, I’ve always been a fan of him and it comes as no surprise to me that he is valued that highly. He is perfect for us when Milner leaves but quite honestly I don’t see him competing for as much game time as he does in Germany at Anfield. Or not until Milner leaves…
Never understood why he didn’t get more of a chance with us, a complete enigma. We got this far without him and if we can get 30m to go towards a new Klopp pick off the top shelf then why not
I like Grujic but at 23 he’s at a major crossroad now and needs consistency. 74 appearances in 6 years and injuries a major contributor to that. Would have liked him to stay in the PL with Cardiff but don’t blame him with nutjob Warnock there. He’s got the skillset; he just needs to show he can put a couple of seasons together.

Whatever happens in the next few games, it’s way too early to be posting something like this.
The title was lost when we drew against Leicester and West Ham. The away games against Everton and Utd cost us as well. City had more quality players than us and very few injuries. We tried but for onve more time we did not manage to take the title. 2002, 2009, 2014, 2019….
If you don’t win the title you shouldn’t be over-hard on yourself. Your points accumulation would have won the league in most PL seasons, problem is you’re up against a team with great financial backing, and obviously a good team in general.
If we start thinking in isolation and concentrate on these two games, then we dismiss the 70 points players had toiled to amass when we played these two teams. Such a tally isn’t attained by dallying on the pitch and it’s normal that there were going to be draws somewhere even at Anfield.
Still 3 games to go but i just cannot see city losing or even drawing the next 3 games.
Ain’t over til it’s over!
Roy Keane said we needed 2 CBs and 2 full backs last night and never got chance to move on to midfield and up front. But realistically, if Pogba, Herrera and Mata are off and even the diehards on here are beginning to realise that Matic, McTominay, Pereira, Fred and Lingard aren’t good enough, then how many midfielders do we need to bring in? And anyone happy with our up front choice of Lukaku, Martial, Rashford and Sanchez, who haven’t been able to score in open play for 500 minutes? It truly is frightening.
But don’t worry, looks like Darren Fletcher’s on his way back to give old Ole some much needed advice. Maybe he’ll get a few games too eh?
That’s not changed in a couple of seasons. The defence has needed work since Mourinho joined. Van Gaal signed Darmian and Shaw as fb’s and they haven’t worked out and need replacing. Mourinho tried to sign 2 younger CB’s to develop and take over from Smalling and Jones, this hasn’t worked either so we’re left needing to reconstruct the defence again.
Maybe if there was a world class defence then the rest of the team could focus on their jobs. At the moment we have to set up negatively against all the good sides because the defence is not good enough to cope. That makes it much harder for the attacking players as they have no support. Yes changes need to be made in midfield and attack but nothing is as urgent as the defence.
That midfield is sh*te hooked. Every team in the land walks through it. Can’t dominate, can’t keep possession, doesn’t protect the back four and doesn’t create much. I could turn your argument round and say if we had a powerful, athletic, dynamic, creative midfield…
