Agree 100% its very possible that they score early on and are 2-0 up within 20 min and it goes on to be a routine win, but if villa keep them out til half time or even take the lead themselves, will be very interesting to see what happens…

People saying that city will have the crowd behind them, but that only works for them, if they’re already winning imo… it’s a pretty bad example, as city won comfortably in the end, but when watching their game against Brighton a few weeks ago, it was 0-0 at HT. There was a lot of moans and grunting from the crowd, and the players were arguing with eachother- then Brighton gifted them the opener, and they cruised to a 3-0 win, haha…

I reckon if they need a goal in the last 15/20, the crowd is gonna be a hindrance, more than anything else.

How many of those games were final game of the season, with the title on the line for city? I’m not hopeful cos I think villa are a better team than city- I’m hopeful cos city have a history of crumbling in high pressure games… and with the Liverpool connection, villa will surely at least be fired up for it…

True, but this is not a motivated Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu unfortunately.

It a tired mid-table Aston Villa who effectively have nothing to play for.

They are not fighting with their last breath to get into the Champions League final, they are packed and ready to go on their summer holidays. If they go 1 or 2 goals down there will be no fightback.

It really is a long shot for us I'm afraid, hence Klopps starting XI last night.

It is a cruel one because we can't help but hope as there is a possibility (me included!), but in all likelihood it will all be over by half time

Agree that villa don’t have the same quality as Madrid, but city lost that game, because they bottled it- not (only) because of Madrids quality. They had Madrid all but beaten, had a 2 goal cushion, conceded one late goal and then 40 seconds later conceded another- no matter how good your opposition is, that’s bottling it. Same as the mahrez penalty last week. If that was a normal game in January or something, he probably would have buried it, but the pressure got to him. And the pressure will only increase - west ham was a bit of a free hit, but this is a must win.

I agree it’s very much a long shot, but stranger things have happened. Agree if they’re 2 goals down, it’s surely over, but if they’re 1 goal down with 5 min to go, they still have every chance of grabbing a late equalizer!

Agree it’s cruel and it’s the hope that kills you, but at least we have a champions league final to look forward to, one week later!!!

However, every time I read one of Jacos posts about it, then I am a believer!!!!!


Does the City team stay in a hotel before their home games????? Would be good to wake them up the night before!!!!

Like the bus wrecking it is another thing they could cry about Liverpool fans that city fans did long before us*


*they may have just set the fire alarm off rather than fireworks before Gillingham in the playoffs, I can't remember precisely.

It would be class if Liverpool fans travelled to manchester to welcome the city bus, haha… not suggesting violence or bus vandalism or anything, but imagine a nervous city team turning up, to be greeted by a bunch of RED flares, and LFC banners!! Would add to their nerves tremendously! And a short trip for local LFC fans…
