    I think people just become institutionalised (or clockwork-oranged) into that way of being tbh. In general terms I feel like how you have described in your post (I.e. Not that bothered), but when a big game comes around and/or the Spurs fans (who are almost as bad as Arsenal fans) start giving it Barry they really get my goat.

    Just can't not want them to lose. Though I probably don't feel as strongly about it as I once did.

    Match day going Arsenal fans are way too obsessed with Tottenham in general IMO. Watched the match tonight in a pub in Finsbury Park and there was a good chunk of people who just spent 70% of the second half singing songs about Tottenham. Like give it a rest.

    I don't especially hate them that much, certainly not as much as United, but Arsenal are historically so much more successful in every way it would be really weird for them to have achieved the ultimate triumph in club football when we haven't. I imagine it would have a pretty monumental impact on the rivalry, in terms of evening the stakes.

    May depend on what happens after. One solitary Champions League win, whilst nothing to be sniffed at, is not alone enough to cement a team's status as an ATG or whatever, or initiate a paradigm shift so far as their wider status is concerned etc. Look at Porto for instance.

    Iím not sure why I always support the English clubs no matter who it is. It could be because I donít remember 66 or 68 so generally English football achieved little internationally or clubily. (aside from the UEFA Cup, but in those days not even the final was live on TV). Then suddenly in the late 70ís we started winning the European Cup every year until the ban and it was great. I will definitely be rooting for Spurs in the Champions League, but it would still be good if they finish 5th or 6th and win nothing.

    Which is what will probably happen to Spurs. Their league form has been in absolute freefall, and there's no way they'll be as lucky as they were against City for 3 consecutive ties.

    Yeah he's such a good player. He'd start for pretty much any other team.

    Quality shithousing from Sterling at the end there. Worked too, basically killed off stoppage time.
    fade, made to fade
    passion's overrated anyway

    How do you get him in? Bernardo into the 8 role and David Silva out?

    Roy Hodgson's comments about Wayne Hennessey are actually hilarious.

    Yeah. David has really tailed off since the first half of the season as well so it's more justifiable than when De Bruyne was out and both Silva's were playing amazingly. Though I think another factor in Sane not playing might be that Pep (rightly) thinks Sterling's ceiling is highest as an inverted LW rather than a RW, and is maybe prioritising maximising him.

    Yeah Bernardo is probably best at RW too, so to get Sane in he needs to move their two best players of this season away from where theyíve been most effective.

    Though even if he doesnít want him in the first XI he should still be getting more minutes.

    Hopes of United beating City to allow Liverpool a chance at the league are being dashed as we speak.
