Pre-season: Asia Trophy

Post by boxman » Mon Jul 15, 2019 10:52 am

Playing man city in the semi final and they are still in the UK afaik, 2 flights cancelled

I was thinking imagine playing in the crisp pristine air in the alps and then jetting off to china to cultivate some lung cancer... maybe the less time spent in china the better :lol:

The problem I have and the problem others might arrive with - is conferring semi-final status,on what is a first match.

If we were to allow ourselves the discretion of normal experience,then we might think the whole enterprise a bit fake.

What isn't fake,is leaving Jordan Hugill behind,allowing him to do better things with his time.

And it's this type of clever squad manipulation that is a feature of the new season development

isn't it summer in the UK? i figured the pessimism was largely due to a lack of vitamin D.. maybe things are so bad that even in summer there isn't enough sunlight to restore the deficit :lol:

I think it's a smokescreen myself. Man City have obviously shat themselves at the thought of playing us and our new strikerless formation. It's clear that the bald one hasn't a clue as to what to do and sees us as a major threat to their defence of the premier league, and was even more perplexed when we left the new shearer ( hughill) behind!
A devilish ploy by our man pelligrini imo.

Very clearly extremely concerned.

Imagine that will intensify when our new man Tore Andre Flo lines up against them.

i remember reading up on some serious prize money to be had at this trophy (why would we bother with it otherwise)... but i can't for the life of me find the figures again

i think it might of been around 5m-10m for winning both rounds

Indeed.
Especially when ably assisted by Mikel forsell. One can clearly see his pants are filling up!
