:lol:

They are, or very close to being the best side, agree that. I just loved your comment, no BS, bang, we are doomed! Which chances are, we probably are.

It is football though, and you never know. I just look at the Man City side and do not see a weakness now, last season they gave you a glimmer, but they are not even letting goals in now. I will keep saying It's football, you never know...

They've handed us some right hidings in recent years and look better than ever.

I think we'll give it a go and lose 3-1

Regret that I'm going to be a sheep and join the massed ranks of the less-than-optimistic on here. (A realist, perhaps?)

Forget the hypothetical 4-1-4-1 formation, it's going to be a 8-1-1 or 9-0-1

Looking for the silver linings: will be watching Anderson very closely to see how he does. Gut feeling says he'll play a blinder against the better teams we face, even if we get tonked. Time will tell.

It's an opportunity for our players, especially the two youngsters, to show what they can do ... it's unrealistic to expect anything more than a loss, but how they preform when the going is really tough will tell us a lot about this side ... a repeat of the 'roll-over-and-die' that we've seen before ... that won't do ... if we lose giving it our best then OK ... and you never know City just might have an off day ....

would like to see carroll with arnie up top and go long ball to them.
fab
zab diop Balbuena cresswell
noble rice obiang masuaka
anderson
arnie

subs Adrian johnson ogbonna Antonio carroll Hernandez diagana

Arthur to help shore up the left side, four in middle with Anderson central to try and link with arnie.
carroll off the bench for last 20 mins to bag the winner !
diagana on for when anderson is knackered, let him run at them a bit, if we get the ball.

keep it tight fully committed and 0-0 going into last 20 mins for carroll to win it.

as the song goes, I had a dream !

head say city win by 3
heart says hammers by 1

It's all about getting to HT level, turning this into a 45 minute game if possible.

As most have said as long as we give it a go then can't really complain. They are on another level and I think we can score, but no chance we keep them out when we can't keep the likes of Huddersfield and Burnley out.

3-1 City would be my prediction and to be honest I would rather they win the league than the mickeys.

It doesn't really work that way when they will likely have 80%+ possession. First 45 will be like a warm up for them & a gruelling work out for us.

You are of course right Clackers, although this is probably the closest you'll ever get to "you do know".

We can’t compete. The playing field is too skewed.

I would use this game purely as fitness for Carroll, Wilshere and anyone else that needs it.

Arnautovic takes the match off. Maybe Anderson too.

Battle for a 0-3 loss which is a good result.

No chance I’d attend.
