Who are Manchester City paying to get these cushy draws, Burton Albion in the Carabao Cup semis (best option by far), Brighton and Hove Albion in the FA Cup Semis (best option by a fair way), Spuds in the QF of the Champions League (one of the easiest in my opinion – beaten them last four times they have played). City may well win the quadruple now.

Ask Manu and Kingo on the Quadruple thread whom tend to agree. Well Steveo funny that coming from a success starved footie fan whose club prefer to pay off a stadium at the expense of winning pots. Must be sooooo frustrating mate.
of course it is mate, my own clubs failings and frustrations aside….this is my view
top teams always get decisions they shouldnt, United did for most of a decade and no one liked it, then when Roman came and chnaged the face of football by outspending everyone and buying everyone (even just to loan them to stop others having them) no on liked it
now city have spent big and are getting those calls, so i personally dont see difference, other than when its for your own team, all good, when its not its dodgy andpaid for etc….this is just foootball, its not right but its not just a new or city phenomena….
My original post was really only referring to the jammy bastards luck in the draw and that would have been my view even if it had been my own club. Bloody lucky they were. We have had our own bit of luck avoiding your lads and Napoli in the Europa. I am also sympathetic that you drew Napoli and will be cheering you on to beat them and progress. Let’s hope both our clubs make the final. It would be a cracker.
Sour grapes Steveo? We had a narrow escape when Abramovich toyed with buying Pompey before he bought Chelsea. You’ll probably think I’m barking mad, but despite all the idiots we’ve had as owners since then, I wouldn’t swap, thanks.
My comments about City are looking in at the prem from the outside. Sure it’s always been bent in favour of the big boys, but now they’re just taking the piss.
