Soccer is generally dire to watch, lads. Especially with most of the English teams (bar maybe Arsenal, because they're still stupid enough to generally try to play positively), you're likely a product that's hard on the eyes.

CL where teams have to actually go out and win is so much better.

Not sure about that.
 
Spurs are usually good to watch (even when they weren't great, they still played open football).

West Ham too.

Utd used to be great to watch.  That frontline of Tevez, Ronaldo and Rooney was amazing.

Liverpool were great too when they had Suarez.  City fairly good to watch that season as well.

How much has Maureen spent?
That was completely dire. How any fan can be happy watching it or even happy with a point is truely amazing.

Pep tried to play. Went for the win and made positive substitutions. 4th in the bag for city and Liverpool now. Utd getting what they deserve. Another season of Thursday night football

And if they win the EL? Do they still play on Thursday ?

Obviously not but do you really believe they are capable of winning EL?

Bar Rashford scoring a breakaway goal they don't look like a team capable of stringing a few positive results together

While the game wasnt of a great standard last night I think you have to be realistic at times.

With the injuries that have occurred I think it was a decent away point at another of the top teams in the league. United started off very well and the tactics were actually working really well and they did look dangerous. I dont understand why he moved Rashford to the middle when there was so much joy to be had with him and Martial down the wings. But also with a better through ball Rashford was away and clear against the centre backs too.

Once City got in control obviously they had loads of the ball but it wasnt like they completed peppered the United goal, so you would have to give credit to the organisation. Pity the Miki is so lightweight and kept giving the ball away meant the team couldnt get linked to Rashford at all in the second half.

Arsenal don't even play decent football any more.

Compare any EPL game to an International match and you will see the level of football and entertainment difference. While there has been some puke football on lately I think that always seems to happen at this stage of the season when the pressure comes on.

Last 4 of the CL is the only football worth watching!

Would the teams left in the competition be better than Liverpool/Chelsea/City?

Maureen didn't spend as much last summer as Guardiola.

Maureen wasn't too far off what Pep spent (1st and 2nd top spenders in the league) and given the performances last night it looked like City playing against a resilient Pulis or Big Sam team not a team who spent 149m over the summer!!!

In fairness 90 odd million of that spend was injured. Plus the lad that was playing like a fella that should have cost 20 or 30 million also injured.

Nor a team who have spent over half a billion since Fergie retired...
Chase is on the case!
