Re: UEFA Champions/Europa League 2012-13 Thread

no jumper pull. you can hold players off if you're twice their size, but if your top is pulled then you're well within your rights. theatrical yes, but still a penalty.

Re: UEFA Champions/Europa League 2012-13 Thread

City didn't deserve 3 points from that anyway. Shocking defending, Garcia and Barry were appalling and there was zero creativity going forward. These marginal decisions even themselves out anyway. You get very lucky at the weekend with an incorrect offside call and then a marginal penalty call saved you vs Dortmund. They even themselves out more often than not. Didn't think Mario helped his cause with his theatrics in the way he went to ground. He's pulling him but enough to pull him to the ground? Didn't think so. He only fell down from the contact when the chance was gone. You create your own luck I guess.

Amused at Mancini running on the pitch and getting himself some of the ref rather than backing his players away from the officials. Feeling the heat and not reacting well to it right now. Better pray he wins the League again otherwise he's gone most likely. Not like City's players are CL novices either. Plenty of experience in Europe with other clubs along with the manager. Same story as Madrid right now. Coming off a big title win but haven't got going at all this season. Defensively they've been vulnerable from the get go. Zonal marking is a catastrophe unless you have it mastered and City clearly don't. Yaya isn't driving them in midfield anymore and there's no creativity without Silva. Only difference is Madrid still have some players who can turn it on in an instant to win games. City don't seem to have anyone doing that right now against the quality teams. God damnit why can't we play them in the league sooner.

Hope they get 3rd from a Utd perspective. No European Football at all would suck regarding the race for the League Title. Thursdays in Europe will be a killer for them though.

Re: UEFA Champions/Europa League 2012-13 Thread

Should have been a pena in the last seconds but tbf city should not have had the free kick, Ajax should have when aguero stamped/raked down on de jong? just before city were awarded the free kick.

Re: UEFA Champions/Europa League 2012-13 Thread

Ref robbed City, in the Aguero goal the "offside" was too close to cancel, 99% legit goal. Then 100% penalty on Mario. But even if you put all this aside, City were horrible the entire campaign, if they're taking 6 points from Ajax they're now up there with Madrid. It was the string of poor performances. What was wrong with Aguero's shoes BTW? Two slips that cost City two goals, especially the first time when it was him and Balotelli 2-1. City can beat Madrid at the Etihad in two weeks but then they need a miracle with Ajax, nah, not happening(The second part. I can see City winning against Madrid).

The angle is lying in this case. You can clearly see the pull in Balotelli's shirt from the other side, it was a clear penalty.

99% certain kolarov was not offside for the goal. dzeko flicked it behind him and kolarov ran onto it, then curled it into aguero. need to see it again though.

Balotelli's face as he goes down is hilarious.

It's a fucking handball too.

Re: UEFA Champions/Europa League 2012-13 Thread

We could beat Madrid the way they're playing right now. They'll improve come Feb. though.

City support tonight was shit too. So many empty seats for a must win Champions League match. Shocking. Seem to remember there being a lot of empties for the Dortmund tie. They only came alive once you pulled it back to 2-2 and even then the atmosphere was minimal given the situation.

Re: UEFA Champions/Europa League 2012-13 Thread

i think i read that there were some massive problems getting to the stadium, just the same as the dortmund game. the dortmund game had a crash or something which meant massive delays, or some people not getting there at all or something along those lines. fairly certain both games sold out
