Games for the Week-end 05/11

Gird your loins chaps! we get to travel to Manchester to take on City at the Etihad

Man City v Fulham

According to Fat Frank, Mitro should have got a straight red, not that he’s biased?, at least the MotD pundits agree that it wasn’t deliberate, Mitro wouldn’t stamp on someone, he might punch them, but not stamp on them!
Willian had another exceptional game, I can’t see him being dropped at the moment, Harry Wilson would have been my automatic choice however currently Willian takes the spot.
Robinson also had an outstanding game, as did Harrison Reed is it too late for an Engerland call up?
Are Pereira and Palhinha the best two signings of recent years? both have slotted into the squad as if they’ve been there for years, Marco has found a way to get the very best out of the team and I’m really pleased that they’ve been able to carry on their form from last season.

City could, fingers crossed, be without Haaland, but proved last weekend that they are a team of exceptional talent in virtually every position unsurprisingly I’m expecting this to be our toughest game so far.

Our record against City isn’t wonderful 2 wins, remember the “Great Escape” season?, 15 losses and 4 draws.

I’m treating this game as a “free hit”, at this point I’d be over the moon with a draw however as long as we give a reasonable account of ourselves I’ll be happy with any result.

Assumining no injuries my team would be…
