Man city have just brought on sterling, aguero and jesus.

No wonder they're winning if they can leave him on the bench.  I didn't even know he had returned.

 

Must keep up. If we did we would have

Glad those PSG dicks are out. They're a disgrace and should have have had another red imo...ref was in danger of losing control of that.

 

Chelsea to win 👍👍

And Darren Fletcher sits quietly in the corner of the commentary booth, gently sponging off the jizz that has seeped through his Man City pyjama bottoms as he weeps tears of happiness.

Foden is a wonderful player but the commentators and commentary/texts on the BBC coverage really over do it.

 

Should have scored on 3 occasions. Against a better team, or a PSG with their best player...that could have cost City.

Has there ever been a semi-final line-up containing four less likeable clubs? Guess I’m reduced to wanting Franco’s mob to win it now.

I'd love to see how Pep does at a club without a blank cheque book, because his managerial record suggests he'll be at PSG next, I genuinely don't think he has what it takes to take on a project and make them a good club who compete at high levels, like proper managers do, that said, of the clubs that are left I hope City go on to win it now, but I have a funny feeling that Chelsea will be a thorn in their side if they get through, which I think they will.

I get the sentiment, however for the sake of a good open game I’d rather watch Real v City than Chelsea v City which I think will be a tactical borefest.

Interesting point but he certainly has a track record of actually improving players

Can't argue that fact mate, I just doubt whether he could lift an entire club without the same funding as hes used to.

Which is why Jose has one up at least on Pep

 

However I don't think it's a topic that will ever be able to be proved one way or another as Pep just doesn't need to 'start' lower down

Good point, he'll probably retire before having to take a role at someone as low as Roma, it's not like he needs the cash and will end up in punditry and will make a fortune from it as well one day I reckon.

Won't be watching but did listen to some of the after match reaction to last night and build up to tonight. 

Man City and Chelsea, 2 of the clubs who pundits were slaughtering a fortnight ago are now being held up as the great English premiership clubs, who deserve to be backed. 

Come on Real, depending on you to get Chelsea and Man City to ****.

Absolutely. 

Plus some transfer fees are just ludicrous amounts of money. Teams must love it when Man City start sniffing around them.

The team lineups and formations look likely to be an exciting match for Chelsea v Real Madrid.    Azpilicueta looks like he's back playing as a fullback, not a center half.   That's how it should be.

Modric is going to beat England by himself again in the summer imo 

Watching him and Kroos in terms of passing and clever movement is a masterclass.

Not as they were at their peak but still such intelligent players to watch. 

Aye they were.

Hazard a weird one.

They would have been better sticking with Bale.

I think Bale has now proven once and for all if he doesn’t get on with the manager and his system he doesn’t play at anywhere near full energy. Thankfully he seems to like Ryan Mason.

A little tale re  Mahrez of Manchester City and how St Mirren failed to sign him

 

The Story Of Riyad Mahrez's Failed Trial At Scottish Side St Mirren Is Incredible (sportbible.com)

 

Mahrez has no doubt enjoyed a wonderful campaign for City as they aim to capture a famous treble, but his journey to the top has been far from straightforward.

 

The Sarcelles-born winger was always gifted technically but his slender build deterred clubs from making a permanent move.

In fact, before he officially began his career with French fourth division side Quimper, a young Mahrez attended a trial at Scottish side St Mirren in 2009.

In an interview with L'Equipe, the Algerian international opened up about that "very cold" trial in Scotland.

 

"An agent, Jean Evina, told me he had trial for me in the Scottish First Division with St Mirren reserves," said Mahrez.

"He paid for my ticket and I went with another guy from [Parisian suburb] Sarcelles, Dany Bekale.

"It went well. I played four friendlies and I scored seven goals - I killed them. And then they made me wait for two-and-a-half months."

 

Mahrez says he'd "had enough" of waiting around for months, so he borrowed a bike to escape.

"It drove me crazy, Scotland. It was cold. It was abuse. It was snowing and everything. I was so cold that one day I faked an injury to go to the locker room." he continued.

"It was physical and it was cold and we trained in the snow. I felt that I progressed. I wasn't allowed to go so I left in secret.

"Anyway, a few days later, my agent said: 'Riyad, I've sent you a ticket, you take the bus right away, get off at Glasgow Station and you get on the train to the airport, then you take the flight to Paris'.

 

"I did not speak English at all. I left my boots at the training ground - I borrowed a bike from a guy from the hotel, I took my football trainers, I made my bag and I left without telling anyone, not even the lady at the hotel.

"I left via a staircase which avoided the reception."

Mahrez also spoke about the situation with Unscriptd years later.

 

"I was quite happy to come back because Scotland was very difficult and very cold. I was young." he said. "I'd never been away from my family for that long."

Despite all the negatives surrounding his trial at St Mirren, the former Leicester City winger admits there were some positives from the experience.

"In these two months in Scotland I really improved physically. I played with the English spirit as well - it's the same as British spirit.

"It was very intense physically and I think these two months helped me.

"When I came back to France I had better movement, better things in my qualities."
