My money's on City doing them over the two matches. And they have the potential to be two cracking matches.

Comments are very odd today...criticism for research, a Withnail quote that makes no sense. All I'm going to say is that Sanchez is fat and Neymar is like a sickly weak kid that you don't really feel any sympathy for because of his awful hair. Moreover I still believe that there are around 50 players in Europe who could easily do what Busquets does with the right coach. For those reasons I want a City win.

Yeah, Danny boy, I'm with red goose on this; done a bit of research before writing your article, have you? Making predictions and suggestions on how sides might line up BEFORE kick off, are we? Verrrrry clever, verrrry bloody sneaky, we'll see though, 'cause I've been watching you, especially you; prancing like a tit.

It's a terrifying prospect, trying to plan against a team like Barcelona. Even if you can ensure that Messi has a quiet game, they've still got so many excellent, game-changing players. Neymar, Sanchez, Fabregas, Iniesta, Tello, Xavi. Where do you start? Hopefully the match itself will live up to the potential, if it does it will be a hell of a game. Good luck to City.

You sound like you know what you're talking about (how many sites did you google for all that info?) - but just wait and see shall we.

e was right to leave, but not just because of the money City were coming into. If I remember rightly he had a reasonable amount of chances to shine at City, but he never passed the bloody ball. Loads of aimless dribbles and 40 yard shots and not much else. I would say that if he had learnt to be a bit more of a team player he may have done better at City.
