Will be interesting to see hoe City go without Sergio Aguero in the next few weeks.

The loss to EF was the final nail in the coffin for Unai Emery...

The gunners current winless streak stands at seven games in all competitions – this is their worst winless competitive run since February 1992!

Here we go again,
We're on the road again,
We're on the road again,
We're on our way to Paradise,
We love the jungle deep,
That's where the lion sleeps,
For in those evil eyes,
They have no place in Paradise.

Manchester City is Paradise...?

They've won the Carabao cup (the current sponsorship name for the Football League Cup) for the last two seasons and are in this season's Semi Final so that must be what you mean, although quite why you'd use the words to a Glasgow Celtic fan song to express it I don't know.

I do think though, that Celtic are in with a good chance of winning the Betfred Cup (the current sponsorship name for the Scottish League Cup).

There has never been a time when either the English or Scottish versions of the competition were simply called "The League Cup." The English version was originally called "The Football League Cup" and since it's inception in 1946 the correct title for the Scottish variant has been "The Scottish League Cup" although both have been been subject to sponsorship adjustments since 1981 and 1979 respectively.

Anybody who knew anything about British football would know that.

Nice to see you pushing commercial sponsorships. I'm sure you do the same thing with the various footy grounds that are known by commercial names. Me, not so much.

As for the City of Manchester Stadium being known as Paradise...

There has never been a time when either the English or Scottish versions of the competition were simply called "The League Cup."

And I suppose there has never been a time when the "The Football Association Challenge Cup" has been simply called "The FA Cup"!

You do realise that what officials call a competition and what fans call it are not always the same thing? No of course you don't. But why would you when you have posted on a number of occasions how much you loath footy fans.

Back to the League Cup. All of the football fans I have ever known have always referred to the cup in question as the "League Cup". I have for example never heard a Scottish fan proclaim that their team won "The Scottish League Cup", never mind the bloody "Betfred Cup". I suppose you think the fans talk about how their team is doing in the "Ladbrokes Premiership". Wonder how many City fans spoke about their team lifting "The Emirates FA Cup" last season.

Aston Villa 1 Manchester City 6. Scorers: Aguero (3), Mahrez (2), Jesus.

Sergio Aguero scored his 12th Premier League hat trick to overtake Alan Shearer's previous record of 11 in this match.

He also became the highest ever non-British goal scorer in the premier league with his second goal in this game. Thierry Henry's record of 175 is now Sergio's record of 177 - and counting.

Not bad for a crock.


Meanwhile at Old Trafford:

Hey, Ole.... do you remember when United were good....?
