What did you expect from Manchester City last season? Did you expect them to make it far in the champions leauge?
and city has all those things as well, we have a better attack, about even midfield, better defence and a similar keeper. failing to see where juventus beat us.
i expected us to finish top 3 in the league and not get very far in the champions league due to inexperience. we still managed to get 10 points which in 99% of years would've got us through.
mancini may have made a few mistakes with us in europe but i expect much more from a squad that has just won the title, scored a shitload and playing some very, very good football. i'dd be bitterly disappointed if we dont make the quarters, our away form hurt us both in the league and in europe. fix that up and we should be much better.
we're in pot 2, compared to pot 3 last season
