You have to hand it to Salah, he is giving it a bloody good go.

The defeat at Everton is good news? I hope they cannot be so poor for some time then turn it round. Glad its away, as I dont think a crowd showing nerves doesnt help. 4-2 to us, Mahrez to be mowing the grass at the Etihad. Hope D Silva can find some form.

Gutted. I've got a ticket for that one but no way I'll be able to make 8pm on the Monday.

Yep. Having to re-jig my plans for that weekend / Monday now, but as I'm already travelling ten and half thousand miles for the privilege I suppose it's a minor inconvenience in the scheme of things. 

The people I feel really sorry for are people flying in from, say Ireland, just for the match - who had booked flights, hotel rooms etc for the Saturday and now have to re-book everything. And then there's families with young children faced with the dubious prospect of a late night and getting them off to school on Tuesday, and themselves to work (or is it still school hols?)  No wonder there are empty seats!  The TV companies couldn't care less about real football supporters - and then take the piss out of us for lack of 'commitment'! 

And all this so that Spurs can take our Saturday spot to give them more time to prepare for the Champions League semi...

Now Monday 6th May, k.o. 8pm

Not actually the greatest news for me after getting home from yesterday's game at half past eight. Looks like I'll be writing off Tuesday 7th. They better win...

Son is a very good player and caused us a lot of problems but he was also very fortunate that the ball kept hitting our defenders and going back to him.

I thought we were good value for the most part, but clearly tiring towards the end.  Shame about KdB picking up another injury. If we do win the Premiership this season it will be quite an achievement.

Defensively, we still look very jittery at times. I think some of our defenders are guilty of ball watching and not picking up early enough on the dangers posed by an opponent with a good, fast, physical forward, hunting for space around them and looking for the long balls over the top. Son is not a bad player but he's not exactly dynamite either, and City's defence should not look so repeatedly flat footed when dealing with him. 

Ah well, it is what it is. We are probably going to have claw and scrap our way right to the finish line. I so wanted us to smash the whole competition this season.
