What am I seeing at Carrow Road right now!? 

A city defence with out Laporte. Could be Liverpool's year now.

Just think losing Laporte and Kompany effectively together might be a step too far. If city win the league with a defence that's either new or have been on the fringes for the past few years that's quite an achievement.

Saying that though I'm not sure why he's rested De Bruyne who's been their best player so far.

That partnership of Stones and Otamendi could cost City a shedload of points this year. Scares me to think how they'll fare against a bigger team. They'll already be having nightmares about Mane Salah and Firmino

waaaaay too early for that sort of talk. Liverpool will also lose and draw some games during the season.

No doubt when the inevitable slump from Liverpool arrives it will be viewed by some as “choking”.... 

City have only dropped 5 points. There’s a long long road to traverse with European footie and injuries to contend with for all...

Norwich doing City over is most pleasant viewing, but that’s were it stays for the moment....

Fair play to Norwich, they fully deserved their victory yesterday.

The absolute state of my Fantasy team this week.. 

Excited for CL to start again tomorrow. It'll be Liverpool's toughest game of their group and Chelsea/Valencia looks intriguing. Excited to finally watch Pompey again tomorrow too - we haven't had a league game in 17 days! Unheard of in L1. We already have 3 games in hand over half the league..

AS "reporting" Madrid and Barca looking to take Klopp AND VVD. 

Utd fans let this be a beacon of light to you on how quickly it can all change. Couple of years ago we were in the relegation places with The Owl as our "manager".

Clear and obvious error from Mike Dean in giving West Ham the red card. But it couldn't even be looked at because it's two yellows. What the actual fuck?

John Stones now also out for City. 5 weeks.

Just put Fernandinho there, we will be right.

Hes a world class shot stopper, his other attributes are very average. Distribution, commanding his area, organising his defence etc etc. I would argue a goalkeeper who could organise and command his area would benefit the team more.

Wouldnt you agree?

Hmmmm. That'd mean a goalie with the ability to polish turds.

That sort of Schmeichel type keeper doesn't exist anymore.

Our defence is slowly getting there now, I would replace shaw but pretty solid other than that.

United finally going in the right direction, will take 2 more years of re building but going in the right direction.
