Manchester City have had mixed fortunes on Merseyside in the past week, sweeping aside Everton at Goodison Park with a breathtaking first half display before underwhelming on the big stage and going down 3-0 in the Champions League quarter-final first leg against Liverpool.
With two such contrasting performances come mixed emotions, and we analyse a turbulent week on the latest episode of the City Watch Podcast. Ian Cheeseman is joined by Anthony Chapman, Paul Risby and Emily Brobyn to discuss the latest events.
Topics this week include:
– Ian Cheeseman was on Anfield Road as Liverpool fans attacked and hurled abuse at the City coach – and shares his views on what happened in a ‘Cauldron of Hate’ in an emotional, unmissable commentary.
– Others on their team share some very strong views on the ‘disgusting’ and ‘vile’ Liverpool fans, and how they crossed the line from supporting their team to becoming something else…
– Discussion of City’s 3-0 loss to Liverpool at Anfield – did the pre-match hostilities affect the team, Pep’s questionable team selection, and City’s struggle to create chances.
– How much incorrect decisions by the referee and linesmen impacted the result.
– Is Pep’s style of football more vulnerable in knock out competitions than over a league campaign?
– Can City turn it around and pull off an epic comeback at the Etihad?
– Derby day is almost here and we preview a game that will bring Manchester and beyond to a standstill as City look to clinch the Premier League title.
– Will Pep field his strongest XI against United?
